Re: can the charge be dropped

It is possible that you can avoid jail time by doing this, however the prosecutor, your parole officer and the judge all have to agree. Also, you will need to be assessed by any drug treatment program, to make sure you qualify. You should have an attorney working a deal like this out for you. Feel free to contact my firm if we can be of any assistance.

This all depends on what the prosecutor and your parole officer are willing to agree to.You really should have counsel to due your bidding.

Good Luck
