Yes, if the prosecutor can prove that you loaned the car knowing they had no license.

Um, if your car was impounded it likely effected you. Otherwise, unless there is information missing, you didn't commit a crime.

Yes, YOU can be charged if you knowingly allow an unlicensed driver to use your car, your insurance will most probably be void and if it is used in an illegal activity the car may be subject to forfeiture. DO NOT DO IT!!!

Not criminally. If they impounded the car you can get it out as owner.

    Sure it can. Your car will probably be impounded for 30 days, and you'll be the one paying the bill to get it out.

    You could be charged with allowing an unlicensed driver to drive your car if you knew that person did not have a valid license and you let them drive anyway. The marijuana should not affect you unless the driver denies it is theirs and claim that it is yours. If charged with anything, consult with an experienced criminal attorney in your area.
