It depends on terms of the parole: if the parole requires the individual to not associate with anyone committing certain crimes, and this (transporting marijuana) is one of them, he or she must immediately dissassociate him- or herself from that person, in the entiretly. A failure to do so would be a violation on parole.
Also, if the individual is even indirectly providing *any* assistance (e.g. drugs are shipped to or stored at his/her home; his/her car has been used to move them; etc.), he or she may be an accomplice if he/she has knowledge of the criminal acts but nonetheless provides even indirect support. He or she could therefore face additional crimianl charges.
