I read all these stories of being caught by cops (which I enjoy reading about lol) and I see some that say the cops searched them or their car without consent or probable cause. Here are some things to keep in mind when you get in a sticky situation with the cops! If you are pulled over and the cop suspects you of smoking, deny it. If he asks for you to step out of your vehicle, take the keys out and lock the door. If he wants to search you or your vehicle, all you have to say is "I do not consent to a search officer." Even if he says "I can bring the K9 unit out here to sniff your car out" simply say "I do not consent to a search officer." NO MATTER HOW INTIMIDATING THEY MAY SEEM, THEY *CANNOT* SEARCH YOU LEGALLY WITHOUT PROBABLE CAUSE. NEVER GIVE CONSENT UNLESS YOU KNOW FOR SURE YOU AREN'T HOLDING. Here are some examples of probable cause: *ANY weed or smoking tools can be seen by the officer *they actually see you smoking (kinda hard to prove) *they see marijuana smoke *they smell marijuana If a cop searches you without consent, whether you said no or they just didn't ask, get a lawyer. If they convince the judge that you were illegally searched, all evidence will be thrown and the charges will be dropped Quick tips: *don't get caught in the first place *keep everything out of sight *blunts/joints are a better alternative as you can throw them/eat them easily *be smart all in all, just deny everything and as long as they have no proof, you should be fine. Don't break under pressure. Good resource: flexyourrights.org who knows, this post might save your ass someday EDIT: I guess the smell is a probable cause. My bad guys *IMPORTANT* LIKE ONE OF THE MEMBERS SAYS BELOW, YOU MUST SAY IT VERBALLY.
