It depends: why did they come in his room? Did they have probable cause? Was he caught with meth? Did they test for meth in his system? Does he have a med mj card?

He will be charged for possession. The amount found will determine the degree of the charge. He needs to have a drug and alcohol evaluation done and start treatment. If there is a diversion program have him take it.

He will most likely be charged. If meth is involved, he will probably be charged with a felony. In addition to criminal charges, the hotel can sue him civilly for any damages the hotel sustained as a result of his illegal activities. These damages could be substantial, especially if meth was present and the room has to be de-contaminated... charges for repairs and lost income from not being able to make the room available for guests. Lots of potential problems. I suggest that he get himself an attorney.

Arrested for possession and use of drugs found - these can be felonies - sometimes we can get charges reduced to misdemeanor or even dismissed in drug court.
