cop pulled me over at like 3am on my street, I was on my way home from fishing at the beach. I cannot tell you how many times i denied smoking and being high, but eventually the cop got frustrated because he knew that I knew my civil rights and he let me walk home. It was really funny because i could tell that he gave it one last shot when he was like "now we can do this the hard way or the easy way, if we do this the hard way then you and your friends will go to jail tonight and if we do it the easy way there will be less penalties." Whenever he asked me if I was high, i would answer with "am i under arrest officer" he said "no" so I would then ask "am i free to go?" first time i ever had to confront a cop about bud, I learned how to deal with the situation from a friend who is a lawyer. You gotta stand your ground and not be intimidated. You don't have to answer any questions you don't wanna answer, just answer with "am i under arrest?" "am i free to go officer"? "what can i do to help the situation?" NEVER GIVE CONCENT TO A SEARCH AND NEVER ADMIT BEING HIGH!!!!
