Re: controled substance
If the event is still within the Statute of Limitations, you just might find yourself subpoenaed or subjected to a search warrant, and these other people might just find themselves prosecuted for possession and use of controlled substances. That may sound a little paranoid, but if I were them, even more than you, I think a little paranoia could go a long way. I'm sorry, but I'm not sure of the actual period which would bar prosecution based upon the Statute of Limitations on that[those] particular crime[s]and any other inclusive crimes. Be careful for their sakes, and your unwanted incovenience and involvement.
