I went out this weekend with a couple of friends. And i was caught by the police with a class b drug (methadrone) on me. The police took me to the police station and have bailed me to return again because they need to send the stuff to a lab. i admitted that it i was mine and was for personal use (the amound was so small)and that i was not going to sell it. I fully cooperate with the investigation I dont do drug a lot, very rarely actually and it seems so stuppid that i got caught with it. I have no previous convictions or cautions the police have advised me that not to say anything to my employer (which is nhs) untill i come back in 8 weeks time. i'm so worried that i will loose my job, have worked for the nhs for over 10 years like my job and have a clean good record at work i need help to what to do? Do i tell my boss and subsequently get told to leave.? do i folow the advise of the police and wait? what will happen if i get a caution for this? if any one has any advice please get in touch!
