    Hello fellow blades,

    I am very familiar with how the general legal system in America functions and operates. I am making this thread to help blades out who are in need of it. Before I go any further, I want to make it evident that nothing I post/any of my legal advice represents the opinions of Grass City Forums in any way, or any of their affiliates. Also, I will not be giving out any personal information--so please don't waste your time.

    But i would be more than happy to help anyone out with their legal troubles/advice regarding their situation. It's the least I could do for the city that's been so nice and accepting to me.

    I will be also posting guides every now and then on what to do in certain encounters with the police. Let me know if you want to request one!

    peace and pot
  2. Your signature and the fact that im baked makes this confusing as fuck.
  3. my signature is just a nug and a bong with my name. and the disclaimer is in case anything i say is tried to use against me in the future.

    basically the point of this is for people who are in legal trouble or have been "busted" to ask someone who knows something about law for advice.

    I hope you're less confused now:)
  4. Don't blow my mind so early in the game!
  5. Hey blueberry,

    Im sure everyone has questions about being pulled over with MJ. What rights does the person being pulled over have if

    a) there is probable cause say by smell of MJ and

    b) there is no probable cause but the cop insists on a search or anything equivalent.

    And can one refuse a vehicle search without the result of a K9 unit being dispatched?

  6. to answer your questions...

    a) sadly, there is not much you CAN do if there is probably cause and they do a search of your car. My only advice in that situation is to say as little as possible, don't let them catch you in your own lies like they do much of the time, and get a good lawyer.

    b) if there is no probably cause BUT they still search your car, you will get ticketed/arrested or whatever punishment they give you initially. however, in court any decent lawyer will be able to prove that it directly violates the 4th amendment, which states:

    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and Warrants shall not be issued, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

    so your main goal will be proving that the search WAS, in fact not legal or probable. Which at times can be an issue, because most officers can simply say "it smelled like marijuana" but in that situation a witess, even if it was a friend in the car with you will help greatly. A reasonable jury, that is aware that law officers will use that excuse even when it is not true, will also help a lot in a situation like this.

    I hope I did a good job of answering your question! If you have any more, just ask. I am more than willing to help.
  7. So I'm on probation for the next 18 months for marijuana related charges.
    Can I legally get my Medical Card? If so can I medicate while on probation considering I get drug tested?
  8. Oh, and on your last question...

    You can't in any state that I'm aware of. I know Texas law better than others but i know that they have the right to call a k9 if there is any "red flag" that there is drug activity. And refusing a search is a red flag. That being said, you could get lucky that the k9 is off or doing more important things so it may be worth a try.

  9. What state do you live in?
  10. I was arrested in california and right now I'm living in washington.
  11. I got one. this is related to a story that happened last year that a friend told me. there was a mj plant growing on someones "country" residence(outskirts of town), BUT the home owners were not aware of it. i think it was like one or 2 plants he said. and they ended up chopping it down and taking it, and not even doing anything to the home owners. is this possible? OR can there be a stiff charge of any kind? im in texas. i know our laws are a little stiff on mj.
  12. Are you on formal or informal probation? In California, you're allowed to get a MMJ license while on probation, but a lot of the times the judge has to warrant that you are allowed to use it. However, many judges know that a lot of people get medical licenses who don't really need them, and those judges may not allow you to use medical marijuana. But that doesn't mean they can stop you when you're done with probation. I'm assuming that you're on informal probation since you were allowed to move to California. Did you get a new PO officer when you moved?
  13. I am in Texas as well. The owners of the property CAN be charged for the grow operation. It's a similar situation as to when people "plant drugs" on other people and then report them. Its fucked up, but it happens. However, if they have a clean back ground, a good lawyer, and a fair judge they SHOULD get off just fine. But that's only if they can prove in court that they had no knowledge whatsoever of the grow operation.

    Hope this answered your Question.

    Peace and Pot
  14. Yeah definitely helpful. I have a few more questions about getting searched, Ill post them when I remember them lol

  15. Bluberry, do you have any knowledge on Canadian laws?
  16. Some. I have been to Canada and i looked into it before i went, mainly because I was curious.

    Canada's Legal System is much less predictable than that of the United States though. I can try to help you though.
  17. Whats the law on strip searches? When are they allowed/conducted? Do they need a warrant? If you hid your mary jay under your sock (in your shoe) say would that work? Ive heard that if they make you take your shoes off its an illegal strip search. If they have probable cause is the strip search perfectly legal? Im in Illinois if it makes a difference.
  18. On the scene of a person being questioned who is believed to be keeping contraband, the police officer can do a strip search. They must be of the same sex of course, and they aren't allowed to do a body cavity search. They usually just do the "shake test" for loose, poorly hidden contraband.

    And no, they are allowed to ask you to take your shoes off. It's just like at the airport, its not a strip search when you take off your shoes to go through security. It is a "partial strip search," other kinds of partial strip searches allow: removal of belt, removal of coat/jacket, removal or hat or head ware, and removal of socks.

    I hope that helped!
  19. haha what? :confused_2:
