University halls - caught with weed watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    I live in Halls at university and was in my friend's room recently. He smokes weed on a regular basis and was doing so in his room last night. I only smoke occasionally but did not partake in this last night and had only been in the room for around 5 minutes when at about 1:30 am, a security guard from the halls knocked on the door.

    He noted the smell in the corridor and proceded to enter the room and confiscate 2 bags of weed and some related accessories such as a grinder.

    I was not involved in the use of weed that night in the room, although I did know it was there, but I didn't care because it didn't bother me at the time.

    I now have a meeting with the manager of the residence soon, and received a letter explaining that the reason for the meeting is that there were illegal substances in the room. The 2 other people who were in the room at the time the security guard entered (one of whom is the owner of the room) reveived the same letter and their meeting is at the same time as mine.

    I was however pretty nervous at the time, and I fear it may have appeared to the security guard that I was in fact stoned (because I kept forgetting words etc), but this was purely because I was so nervous at what could happen because weed was found in the room.

    What should I say tomorrow? I feel that they won't buy my story about not having smoked weed last night - although to be fair I didn't have any in my possession or in my room, and I hadn't smoked any, and seemngly I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    What will they likely do to my friend who owns the room, and me. What should I say tomorrow at the meeting? Surely the fact they are dealing with it within the halls is better than dealing directly with the uni?
