Juveniles charged with marijuana-related offenses in New Jersey are subject to the same laws and procedures, generally, as juveniles charged with any other criminal offense. Technically, juveniles charged with acts constituting offenses are not being charged with the offenses themselves. Rather, what they are charged with is delinquency, that is, with acts which, if committed by adults, would constitute offenses. At the time of the juvenile's encounter with the police, he is not “arrested.” Rather, he is “taken into custody.”
These differences have legal significance. If the charges are ultimately proved, the juvenile has not been “convicted” of the offense. Rather, the juvenile has been “adjudicated delinquent.” The juvenile will then have a juvenile record, but he will not have a criminal record. If the juvenile happens to not be a United States citizen, his juvenile adjudication will not be a barrier to a later application for naturalization.
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”
“Chris Christie is a disgrace not just to NJ and the USA, but to humanity as a whole. His refusal to acknowledge the majority in this country of cannabis supporters is appalling. He is literally the cancer killing our country and we need to bury this sack of garbage in a landfill FAR FAR away from politics.”
