Legal Question

Asked on: 10/01/13, 12:27 pm

Hello, so about 3 and a half months ago my boyfriend, my friend, and I got pulled over for speeding. The cop smelled marijuana in our car so he searched it. He found less than a gram of marijuana underneath my seat (the passenger.) I have my medical marijuana card, but it has to be locked in the trunk of a car to be legal. He also found a pipe and a lighter underneath my seat as well. (We were smoking when he pulled us over.) The cop also found 10 adderall pills in a burned cellophane in my purse. So that didn't help me much because it looked like I had purchased them because it was in a burned cellophane. The cop asked me what it was and I told him adderall and that I was prescribed. I wasn't prescribed at the time, but I had been prescribed prior (like a year ago.) Now the cop never gave me a ticket. He was a cop from Allegan County and I am from Kent County. He told me I had 10 days to turn myself in. Now immediately after the incident I called a lawyer and he said I was fine. He looked up my name and I didn't have a warrant. He said the cop was an idiot for not giving me a ticket and that I was fine. So I didn't worry about it for awhile, hoping for the best. I hadn't had any contact with the police since then. After awhile, just to be sure I called about 2 months later and it turns out I have a felony warrant out for my arrest and a misdemeanor for having marijuana in the wrong place while driving. So the day I found that out I called my doctor and got prescribed to adderall again. He gave it to me and I picked it up that day. I am also getting a lawyer. Will the fact that I got prescribed and was prescribed before help me much in court? And if so, how much? What should I do? Yata yata yata etc etc etc Help me please haha
