In Oregon, the police came to my door, said they smelled marijuana from the livingroom window. asked if there was medical marijuana permit. wasn't one. asked to come in, asked if there was marijuana inside. said no, they said I either had to let them in because they smelled it, or I had to stay outside with my children while they went for a search warrant and child protective agency would be notified, that I wouldn't be allowed back in my apartment. scared for my kids I said ok, got my kids and let them in, they removed plants, removed marijuana, removed paraphenalia. I don't know how many plants there were, but it was 'way over the legal limit even if we'd had the medical marijuana cards' the police officer said. The dried marijuana was approximately 1lb. They issued citations to husband and myself. citation mentions 'child neglect' I don't understand this. I'm terrified of what's going to happen. I have no record at all, Husband has one count possession 10years ago, was ordered to pay a fine and he did. I called the courthouse and they say we cannot talk to the public defender assigned our case until the court date in nearly 2 weeks, but I'm too scared. I need to know what is going to happen to have some idea of what to do. The officer said we had to go down to the station soon and get fingerprinted and photographed, I don't understand any of this.
