Why is my OWI being treated as a separate case?
Hello, I am a first time offender with a clean record otherwise. About two months ago I was pulled over for not stopping completely at a stop sign. I was carrying a half ounce of marijuana on me. The officer said that he smelled burnt marijuana which got me to admit almost immediately to having smoked recently to driving. The officer asked me to get out of the car and ran me through the typical drunk driver test. He then placed me in the back of his police car, informed me I was being arrested, and that is when I admitted to the possession and handed over the ounce. I was taken to the station, booked, and a pee sample was taken. Now, two months later, I have a court appointed lawyer, Mr. X, for my serious misdemeanor possession charge and haven't heard anything about my possible (and more than likely) OWI. Mr. X says that, once the OWI surfaces, he'll give me a deal and represent me on both charges. I am looking to seek deferred judgement. A family lawyer told me that if I take my deferred judgement then it should cover the misdemeanor AND OWI. Why haven't I heard anything about the OWI yet? Why is Mr. X making it sound like it's a completely different thing with its own bill?

Will I get drug tested and what happens if I fail?
I am on formal probation for a first offense owi. That's not all that happened though. I hit a gas pump and fled the scene of the accident. I spent 30 days in county jail. All I got charged with was a first offense owi. I've been on probation for about 6 months now and have already payed my $300 probation fee (Payed it as soon as I got out of jail). I meet about every 2 months it seems and haven't been drug tested yet. I'm on probation for a year so I got about 6 months left. Will I get drug tested for a non drug related crime? If so what happens if I fail considering I haven't took one yet?
