So i live in washington state and i was pulled over with my friend (he was driving) and i got caught and took the blame for the bud in the car, the cop asked where the weed was and i just gave it to him right away (cause obvioulsy it was some dank from my dude garth and he could definetly smell it). he told me being honest saved me from going to jail, he then wrote me a citaion for the possesion and a couple months later i recived some court papers in the mail telling me i had to go to court for possesion charge. in washington to get out of a bud charge you usually have to take like 90 day out patient classes and take piss tests to make sure that you are staying away from bud. So i said fuck that and went to get my medical marijuana card and at the pre trial the prosecuter told me that i was going to have to take drug classes and shit, and then i showed him my medical marijuana card and they dropped all charges right then and there. I never had to hear anything about it and i never even had to pay a court fee.... So the moral of the story is if you get caught with bud get your medical card and you will toatlly get away with it, they said the minimum fine was 550 dollars + court fees,, i went to the herb doctor and it only cost me 160 instead of around $900-1000 and now i can have 24 oz on me at a time LEGALLY. no more worrying about bud being in the car ever again!!
