My friends plus I took a road trip down the coast of CA.
Both of us were gone for many mornings plus the two of us took lots of marijuana with us on the trip.
Marijuana was not legal at the time. My friends plus I got pulled over for speeding plus the two of us were right outside of San Francisco! The officer was a young guy that was new to the force, and he found the basket of marijuana in the automobile plus tried to say the two of us were drug smugglers. Both of us had a half ounce of weed on us at the time, and i why is sited in cuffs plus so were my friends. Both of us went before a judge in San Francisco plus he found us guilty of the crime. I was sentenced to turn myself plus and spend 30 mornings in jail. These mornings, San Francisco plus the rest of CA have legal marijuana laws, any person can legally carry up to 1 oz of marijuana in their vehicle; Since the laws changed, my past infraction is no longer a crime. A lawyer called myself and others plus said he could work to get the conviction expunged from my record plus gone forever, however the guy wants $2,500. I don’t know I had to pay that much in court fees while the two of us were in the original case plus I had a year of payments after I got out of jail. Since it’s just a charge for marijuana, I don’t mind if someone sees that on my permanent record or not. It’s not a law anymore plus most people knows that.
