Plead insanity! then they'll put you in a happy place :)

what does truancy even mean?

If you continue to miss school they can throw you in Juvenile Hall and force you to go. Quit smoking pot! It is bad for your brain and your soul. Pot is not a harmless drug...you'll just end up doing coke. Believe me I know. Get your heart straight with God. Ask Jesus into your life and he will help you if you really mean it.

Your parents are responsible for this. They cannot make you take a drug test.

You'll likely be tested if put on probation which sounds likely. The initial test will be for drugs and subsequent tests will see if you're continuing.

From the way you describe this you've been doing more weed than stated but hey I know what it's like. It will be in your system unless you can mask it but it takes a full 40 days to get completely out.

Don't worry about it. Just explain the situation and I'm sure everything will be fine. That's what I did when I got a truancy letter.

1) Why couldn't you get a doctor's note?
2) Your drug test will come up positive if you take it.
3) No, you will probably have to pay a fine or probation.
