I was 17 years old and resided in NJ at the time of this event. I was driving to the movies with my friends 4 years ago when I got pulled over. The officer smelled marijuana coming from my car and said that if he I didn't let him search my car that he would get a warrant and a canine unit out and it would be much worse for me in the end. At the moment I caved and handed over the cannabis and grinder that I had in my position. I was arrested and had to go to my local county courthouse where I had to write a letter to my parents apologizing for my actions and was placed on 3 months probation. I'm not sure if this was some sort of pre-trial intervention program or a conviction and I'm wondering if someone here can shed some light on this for me. Thank you.
