Hello, my name's Brad, I'm 19 years old, and a 1 year completed SN.
I made a mistake at a party a few months back, but I still worry about it now. The purpose of this post is to determine disciplinary action. Please read the post in and of its entirety. I'd really appreciate it.
A few months back, I attended a get-together at a friend's house, many people there I didn't know. I entered a room full of people, didn't see any familiar faces, so sat on a couch in the corner where there was an open spot. Then I saw it 3 feet away on the coffee table:
I saw a Tupperware container half full of what looked like tobacco. I asked the girl sitting in front of it what it was. She said something about tobacco, rolling cigarettes, or some slang word for it.
Any healthcare worker knows it's ESSENTIAL to avoid any sort of controlled substance, but figuring it was tobacco, I really didn't have a problem being near it, and didn't want to make a huge deal of it, as I didn't really know anybody there.
My friend approached me after about 10 minutes, and made some sort of pot reference. It was safe to assume that the container was marijuana at that point (I always figured it was a green leaf of sorts, but I'm fairly sure what was in the container was pot, even if it didn't look like it).
I told her I had to go, and just kind of left. It's not that I'm unaccepting of people who do that kind of thing; I just can't afford to be around it, because my family had cases of addiction and whatnot. But then a thought crossed my mind on the way home. What if my future (or current one, for that matter) employer caught wind of me being at said place, with marijuana present. I've never done anything like that before, but being there has to be some of violation. Just being pictured with it there, there would probably be some sort of repercussion. And I, thinking the worst, would automatically assume I'd lose my license, even though I'd never fail a drug test, as I've never done drugs.
I just think I was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and had absolutely know idea that's what would be going on.
So what would it warrant? A violation? Probation? Permanent Suspension?
Thanks for your time.
