If she revealed this in voir dire but the defense decided to keep her on the jury anyway, then the answer is no.

Drug Crimes
If you're facing criminal prosecution for the possession, cultivation, manufacturing, distribution or trafficking of an illegal drug or controlled narcotic substance, or for prescription fraud, talk to a criminal defense attorney with experience representing clients who have been arrested for drug-related crimes. Your lawyer can defend you against the drug offense allegations, attempt to negotiate a plea bargain and represent you during trial. If you've had money or other property seized by the government through civil asset forfeiture, your drug crimes law firm can also fight to get your property returned to its rightful owner.
