    Default What Happens if You're Caught Using Drugs While on Probation

    I received an open container charge in North Carolina. I've completed my community service and I just called to go take an alcohol assessment. During our conversation he told me the price of the assessment also included a $30 drug test. I have recently smoked marijuana, so how bad will this be if I fail the drug test for the marijuana?

    Is the drug test even necessary to take for an alcohol assessment?

    Thank you.

    You could well find yourself with a citation for consumption of marijuana, for starters. Fortunately for you, it's a minor misdemeanor for first offenders, meaning no jail time and no criminal record.

    It's a terrible idea to indulge in illegal substances when you're busy trying to get your butt out of the sling on a previous charge. Don't do that.

    How else are they supposed to know for sure if you've got booze in your system? Part of an alcohol assessment is determining if you've been drinking very recently.

    That would be unfortunate if they somehow added another citation.

    I just do not understand why they would be checking my urine for any drugs other than alcohol if this is an alcohol assessment.
