Does my smoking marijuana affect my driving record? 11 Answers as of July 04, 2013

My boyfriend and I parked in the alley next to a bike trail. He smoked a tiny bit of marijuana and I smoked a cigarette. A cop came down the alley and searched my car and found the steamroller and weed. (Less than an ounce) my boyfriend claimed it as his and got an infracture for marijuana. I didn’t receive a ticket nor did they ask me if I had smoked, which I hadn’t. I am curious if this will be on my driving record?

Since you were never charged with a crime, it will not affect your driving record. You boyfriend's driver's license however could be suspended.

If you did not receive a citation, then your record should be unaffected by this incident. However, you should be aware that if you are under the age of 21 and your are convicted of any alcohol and/or drug related offense, you will lose your license for 1 year. I hope this answer was helpful.

    Not on your record. Depending on his age, it could affect your boyfriend, but that was not the question.

    This will not be on your driving record. This did not happen while driving and your boyfriend admitted guilt. Thus, this will be on his criminal record but not yours. You can always expunge the infraction with a 1203.4a motion as well.

    No. If you were neither cited nor charged, there will be nothing against you upon which to base any action. Without an action, there will be nothing on your driving record.

    No for you, but maybe yes for your boyfriend. Minor in possession cases can result in 1 year of license suspension, but only if you were cited.
