If an ex boyfriend has given the police a tip

They are putting you on. There is no way in which the police will or can test you.

I am confused sadly as all the other experts are saying I will have a criminal record no matter how little or how much cat I have in my system? I thought that’s not right. I believed your answer is correct

Thank you for the positive rating.
