    eta: just out of curiosity i googled this. possession of ecstasy isn't always a felony but even if it is in my state (CA) one can do a 1 year treatment program and then be on probation instead of having the felony on your record. so, i'd be off the hook even if i did something so stupid.
    Ah. Now i do have bit more insight knowledge about these type of things. First, in my country(i'am from high security country) the police has record completely made for criminal suspects. Meaning that even if you haven't done anything you may end up there just because you seem suspicious(one single official can decide how suspicious you are). And suprise suprise, it can affect in your life without you even knowing it(not getting certain job, having some of your private things examined, being stopped at the toll when you travel; especially in drug case you may start having these).
    So in this case, if it seems so you may end up to that suspect record under the label "possible organized crime member". Also in my country there should be arrangement to treatment for these people, but i know that this happens rarely.
    So in the criminal record you may get accurate info of what you did. But in the other records there can be anything.
    All this is wrong in my opinion, but ordinary citizen cannot access to the other records and see what has been written from him/her.



    And i still hope those who answer the poll "something else?" would explain what that would be.

    Realistically I would either do nothing, or bribe the official if I knew it would actually work (that I wouldn't get into even more trouble).

    However, the noblest course of action is what Tellenbach said: report the official and try to change the law.

    If everyone in situations like this did the easy thing instead by choosing to participate in corruption instead of pointing it out, it would make it more unlikely that the legal system would change for the better anytime in the near future. But of course, most people don't want to make an immediate personal sacrifice towards achieving an outcome that seems potentially unlikely, in the (possibly distant) future, requiring collective effort, and having an uncertain and complicated path to being realized.

    I personally feel that in this case sacrificing ones own future for uncertainty is not smart. I think that fighting for the better future is for those who are not in the claws of government. Once the person is not in immediate threat from the all mighty then maybe he/she can have the strength to point out mistakes and also admit them to him/herself.
