Customer Question
I went to court...

I went to court today and got deferred adjudication for misdemeanor possession of marijuana

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And can you tell me a little more about the charge?

I fear I failed the UA with a controlled substance

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

This was my very first UA. I didn't know I would be taking one. I've never been in trouble

You haven't had the benefit of any remediation yet. While nobody will be happy about this particular U/A result, in my experience they will use it as a baseline and an opportunity to warn to be clean from here. Beyond that, nothing should happen because you haven't started the program.
