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
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.
