Well in the US the marijuana laws are so hard depending on were you live i have looked at stories were a guy had a noise compliant put on his by someone and when the cops got there they saw a little bud in the table about a dollars worth and you want to know what he got...? Ten years! Marijuana laws are different in every state. It is important to be aware of the subtle differences, this page will provide you with an overview of the current marijuana laws. Buying, selling, using or growing marijuana is illegal in every part of the United States. Penalties vary from place to place, but usually consist of jail time, a fine or both. In some states, you can be arrested for just being in a place where you know drug activity is taking place. The severity of the penalty varies on several factors. go to the "related link" listed below for more info on your state. He will be tried under the juvenile laws of the state of residency. For a first time offense he will likely receive probation and community service, possibly the suspension of his driver license, maybe a fine. It is highly unlikely he will be confined to a juvenile facility unless there are mitigating circumstances. I was caught with weed on me. I live in Ohio and I had 2.5 grams. I am 17 and I was charged with a minor misdemeanour and my punishment was 10 hours of community service. If it is a one time thing it wont be that bad but if they catch you with more then it will be house arrest and probation and if you keep it up you'll do time but if its your first time it will be some small punishment. My friend even got off with paying a small fine. I also have a friend who was caught driving with about an eighth. He was also high, but the cop confiscated his herbs, gave him a $70 ticket, and let him drive home. This was in Colorado. I currently live in California, where I have a medical recommendation and can use marijuana freely with no penalty.

If I was pulled over and the sheriff found a half ounce of marijuana but did not write me a ticket and said he was letting me off is there anyway that I can later be charged?

It wouldn't make since to be let go and charged later. It would have to be called in at that time and if one was let go and the marijuana was taken with the officer, one would have to wonder! No way you can be charged later. Not even good sense yes. Double jeapordy does not apply to you because you were not charged. I'm no lawyer but it is very possible to be charged. my vote is dont carry marijuana in the first place!

What would cause a urine test to show positive for cocaine and marijuana?

Only cocaine and marijuana would make a urine test show positive for cocaine and marijuana. For example, marijuana contains THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC, is ONLY found in marijuana and nowhere else. However you can find it in some drinks and foods in Europe but it came from processed marijuana plants. Hope this helps you! :)

Yes.Added: If another suspect is developed and eventually charged and tried for the crime it is legal. It is only if the SAME individual who was originally found not guilty was re-charged for the crime that it would amount to double jeopardy.

Being charged is not the same as being convicted. A person who has been charged might still be found innocent of the crime of which he or she has been charged. However, if you have been charged and also convicted of aggravated assault, that is a serious crime and it would involve jail time.

Should marijuana be decriminalized?

I believe Marijuana should be decrimnalized, that way it is still Illegal to Harvest. The advantages to "Pot" being decriminalized are you will no longer be able to be charged for possesion of Cannabis and/or Paraphernalia. The concept of Smoking Weed however would sill be frowned upon in a just Society.
