I was recently pulled over for my license plate being on my windshield. The cop said he smelled marijuana, told me to get out of the car and did sobriety test on me. I was then later questioned (in which I told him I smoked an hour ago) and tooken to the Merced county jail for the night. My main concern is if I will do time in jail? Or if they are ways I can avoid jail time because I am a full time college student and also a part time worker

I was recently charged with a DUI. I have a marijuana card, in which the cop said was fake. But he found 10grams of marijuana on me, and little scrapes of wax in a container. I was not charged with having the scrapes though. I am aware that the cops could still charge me for the scrapes of wax, and I am wondering if jail time would be involved? I as well hired a lawyer
If you already have a lawyer, you should pose these questions to that lawyer. Good luck.

This is my second DUI offense. I was arrested because I blackout and crash into the neighbors yard. I submitted to a blood test and it came out that my bac level was .08. I was restrained from the officers and was tackled resulting from bruises and cuts.
There may be lots of issues regarding your case that an attorney would have to find out about in the discovery process....
Officer initiated stop just after midnight (a Sunday night/Monday morning) for my brights being on in my headlamps. After completing several field sobriety tests, the officer had me blow into a handheld alcohol screening device - no idea what brand or model. I blew .09, and then .07 two minutes later. I asked the officer if I was free to go - since my last breath test measurement was below the legal limit - to which he replied that I was not and that he was placing me under arrest and would be transporting me to the county jail's "drunk-tank" (he didn't use those exact words, nor did he inform read me my Miranda rights, but from what I have read here on Avvo this may be fairly common). I was not asked to submit to further testing of blood or breath. Wasn't this just a PAS device?
The PAS is admissible evidence, although the weight of the evidence can be questioned. They should have had you blow...
Several years ago my friend got a DUI. Then another one a year later. She went through the classes and she got her drivers license back. A couple of years past and she forgot about them. She decided to go to nursing school and she graduated During the background check she forgot about her DUIs and didn't report it to the Nursing Bureau. During school she got a divorce. She went to court and got full custody for the kids. Her ex told her that if she tries and goes for child support he will report the DUIs to the Nursing Bureau. Which in turn will get her fired because she will probably lose her nursing license. He has holding that against her for the last 4 years . Can she get a court order (gag order) preventing him from reporting her past DUI's to the Nursing Bureau.
The problem is that a criminal conviction is a public record. Your friend needs to report the DUI to the Licensing...
