It really depends on a lot of things. Being...


Your past record,

the cops that are arresting you,

how much mj is on you (more than an o?),

what county in Texas you're in (hopefully Travis),

the lawyer you hire,

were you inside a vehicle?


If it's a first offense, most likely you will get community service and have to take a drug enforcement education program of sorts in your county (slap on the wrist). Your biggest fee will probably be your lawyer and to get it expunged off your record in a year. Depending on the county most likely no drug testing/probation. Don't worry too much and think positive thoughts.

An advantage of community service is that it can enhance your resume. A disadvantage of community service is that it can be a form of punishment. ^^ ;)

Some schools do institute community service as punishment. This is an alternative to standard expulsion and offers a way for the offender to give back to the community.

Community based punishment is usually referred to as community service. This is often given instead of a prison or jail term.

It depends on how much you are caught with, and your previous record if you have one. It also depends on your own country's or region's laws. You can get anywhere from community service to multiple years in prison;poo

No, it is not the same thing, you can get both at the same time as punishment.

It's going to depend on which state you live in. In Texas, it's typically a small fine ($300) and maybe some community service. It's generally a misdemeanor if it's a small amount.

First offense for possession only, you should be ok. You will probably have a fine, community service & possibly probation. Stay on your parent's good side. Sometimes their opinions are factored into punishment. Good Luck.

Depending on the community, there will be either a 'disorderly conduct' ticket or most likely the juvenile causing the damage will have to pay for damages and/or community service.

you will either give you a court date, do community service and give you a fine. and this will be a minor charge on your record and will be erased when you turn 18.

He is doing 6 months community service. So sad I bet he will make a song while he is doing it

Most likely you'll either receive a fine, community service, or both, depending on the judge.

User Avatar

There is no single punishment. A judge will consider a lot of factors- first offence, history of violence, aggravated circumstances, etc. Could end up as anything from community service to years in jail.
