Tennessee Juvenile Drug Possession Penalties
The juvenile justice system is supposed to be focused on rehabilitation rather than punishment — at least in theory. In reality, minors arrested for drug crimes can face harsh consequences such as:
- Revocation of driver's license
- Suspension from school or extracurricular activities
- A record that will be visible to law enforcement officers during traffic stops
- Possible loss of educational opportunities in college and graduate school
- Loss of eligibility for student grants and loans
- Incarceration at a juvenile facility
One statistic is enough to convince most parents that a juvenile detention center is not a place where they would want their child to spend even a night. Nationally, 1 in 10 juveniles report that they were sexually abused by a guard or another inmate while they were kept in a juvenile detention facility.
Our goal is to keep the focus of the juvenile justice system where it belongs — on rehabilitation.
