I got a Marijuna citation with cdl license but don't smoke it so its not in my system......

Okay so here's the deal......the other night I was pulled over by the cops I was told that my car smelt like marijuana (I don't smoke because I have a cdl...but the person I just dropped off had a strong odor of it on him)........anyway I was searched in they found a small like bag of marijuana in my car........I was giving a marijuana possession citation ticket from the cop and was told I will be getting a court date in the near future.....now this is where I'm really worried because truck driving is my lively hod I'm 26 years old n been driving for about 1 year.

I don't smoke marijuana in don't have it in my system....... I just need to know if that citation will cost me my license for a year.........PLEASE IF ANYBODY OUT THERE WITH LOTS OF YEARS TRUCKING COULD GIVE ME A LITTLE ADVICE I WOULD REALLY BE GRATEFUL OF IT........thanks

I was in the same boat, my cousin is a lawyer and i had paraphernalia and possession charge. I was told it was only a ticket, get you a lawyer. My cousin had my paraphernalia dismissed and my possession, which says drug abuse on my record, "sigh". Is a No Plea, but i had to pay 150$ fine that day. never lost my lisence, never had any probation or anything. Im still curious as to if i can even get into trucking.

As you can see, it's easy to get screwed over, even if you're innocent. Moral of the story : Don't hang with buddies that smoke, because you can see what happens. He leaves HIS stuff in YOUR car and you get busted. This will hurt you for your driving career, because it will show up on your record and your company will probably cut you loose. Fight it in court and hope for the best. Jimmy
