Can a sober minor get in trouble for driving high minor passengers?

So I am going to a concert and my friends are going to get high and potentially drunk.
I am not going to be high or drunk. I will be completely sober.
I live in Massachusetts.
I will be driving my friends to and from the concert. There will not be drugs or alcohol in my car at anytime.
I am 17 and so are my friends, so I am legally allowed to drive minors.
Can I get in trouble if I get pulled over?
im not asking if its morally or legal right or wrong to let my friends get high or drunk.
I am asking if I will get in trouble.

You should review the FAQ for Junior Licensed Drivers at the link below. You might need someone over 21 depending how long you’ve had your Junior License. And you could be subject to curfew.

As far as having passengers that are high, as long as they’re behaving themselves and not causing you to drive recklessly, then that shouldn’t be a problem. Besides that, the only way the police would know your friends are drunk is if they stop you for an infraction.

    I’m not a lawyer, but as long as there is nothing in your car, bottles, cans, roaches, what ever, i think you should be okay.
    DRIVE SOBER!
