Re: Daughter and her friends were arrested for drugs.
Tough situation since the crime does not match the punishment as it were. She does need some form of punishment or consequence but the sentencing is too harsh and may do more damage than good. Her choice is one of immaturity that odes not affect another's well-being other than her own, she is not that high as a potential danger to society.
Lets say she was caught drinking and arrested at 19 for drinking but was cognisant enough not to drive and put others lives at risk: She is essentially being punished for a DUI.
She does need to grow and make more mature decisions but from little of what is on here, this is quite correctable. Kick her out, make her pay you bakc with interest. Take away more of that security blanket or give her goals of what she needs to accomplish should she remain around to prove she can grow from this.
