The joint enterprise law means that you could be sentenced for encouraging or assisting in the crime, even if you were not the person who carried out the stabbing.
Your mates should never pressure you into doing something you don’t want to do, whether that is coercing you to carry a knife, or encouraging you to carry out a violent assault.
If you feel that you are being pressured into carrying a knife, talk to someone you trust. It could save someone’s life, including your own.
