Arrested for marijuana in your car?

A common way to be charged with simple possession of marijuana in South Carolina is by being pulled over with marijuana in your car. Often times officers will just ask if there are drugs in the car or if they have permission to search.

We all have a fundamental right to remain silent when confronted with questioning by the police. We also have a right to refuse to grant requests by police to search or automobiles.

If you refuse to answer police questions or a search of your automobile in some cases you may be searched and/or arrested regardless. By refusing to answer or consent to a search though you have preserved your rights to challenge the police conduct in Court later.
