In september i was 17 and got pulled over and they found a little over a gram of marijauna. The juvi was full they had said, so I was let go; now 2 months later i am 18 and i have court wednesday for posession of less than 40 grams of marijauna. I have never been in any kind of trouble, no tickets or anything, so my question is what kind of penalties am I looking at? and also, will i be considered an adult or a minor? I don't want to miss any school and i also can't lose my job so i am hoping no jail-time...thanks in advance for any help given

The answer to all your questions depend entirely upon state law and you did not identify a state. Consult local counsel.

I agree with the previous poster, if you have not done so already, you may want to consult with a local Criminal Defense Lawyer to advise you of your rights regarding this matter.
