I was stopped at a check point on I-10 in Texas, had pot in car as well as suckers bought in Colorado that had THC in them. I am not a user, just a whim with the pot, as well as buying suckers at a store in Colorado. I was ticketed for drug paraphernalia. Such a huge mistake, but am so freaked out. I paid the drug ticket. The sheriff let me go, with the understanding that I would get a request to come back for the possession
of an illegal substance (the pot fricking suckers.) The ticket showed that my car was not searched for illegal substances. I was sent on my way with no citation for the THC, no amount of an illegal drug by federal standards in my possession. I am a 58 year old female, with no outstanding warrants. It was a bad decision on my part to buy the suckers, thinking that maybe suckers would help with stress in my life. The sheriff told me that this would not go away, could be weeks or months before I could be notified of a court date. Where I was stopped is at least an*****from my home. Should I hire an attorney at this point?
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I have no idea. I was let go with a citation for the pot charge. No response of any kind from the county this happened in.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I have nothing to hide. Was just a bad decision to buy the suckers. The pot was given to me. I did not use anything before hand. The dog smelled the pot, I gave it up immediately, an admitted to having the suckers in my suitcase in the trunk of my car. I didn't want to lie, thinking they would find it anyway.
