A: Yes, you could certainly get a probation violation for that depending on what your conditions of probation are. So if a condition of your probation is no use/possession of mood altering substances, having weed would violate your probation. Most conditions of probation include a standard condition of notifying your agent within 48 or 72 hours of any law enforcement contact. This is likely to be a problem for you. Get representation if you are violated for this.
