A friend and I were caught with a Bong, 2 grams of cannabis and 0.1grams of MDMA. This is our first offence ever and we'd like to know what sort of trouble we are in. Should we get a lawyer? The police themselves at the time said we would just get " a kick up the backside " but we are both nervous and we are both full-time uni students, so the idea of a fine or something more severe is a scary thought. We had to take a DNA swab and a photo at a police station as well. Do we now have a criminal record for possession of drugs? Overall, how much trouble are we in under Criminal Law? Any answer to this would be immensely appreciated as the case is coming up in a couple days.
