Why was a florida cop plants drugs in car?
Q: I was watching a news story last night, and they reported on how a florida police officer was caught with some pot in his car. I'm not a pot smoker, but what is a legal way to smoke marijuana in a vehicle? Would a person have to be in possession of a valid medical marijuana card to do so? Would I have to have a valid prescription for medicinal pot in my name?

A: Under Florida law, you must be 21 to purchase and use marijuana. However, if you are 17 or older and have a valid prescription for medical cannabis, you can possess marijuana and consume it in your vehicle. It is illegal to operate or drive a motor vehicle while under the influence of cannabis.
Q: My 15-year-old daughter has a job. I think she may be using her insurance to take drugs. She has been using e-cigarettes. What are my rights to address this?
A: The terms of her insurance contract will control whether or not your child can use her insurance to buy, possess, and consume marijuana. Some auto insurance policies, for example, prohibit the use of tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, and prescription drugs. Your daughter needs to check the terms of her policy to see whether she has crossed a line.
Q: My uncle had a two-day domestic violence arrest. He was sentenced to jail time and a few years probation. Can the police do a warrantless search of his car?
A: Some states do not allow any warrantless searches of a vehicle if it is not being used as a vehicle. If it is being used as a vehicle, then a warrant is generally required to search the interior of the vehicle. Your uncle should check to see whether he can be searched without a warrant.
Q: I have a new job and I am looking for a used car. I can't afford a new car. Can I buy a cheap car and repaint it?
A: In states where you can legally possess and consume marijuana, there are some states where using public transportation is illegal for medical marijuana card holders. You should check with your employer to find out if you will be permitted to use public transportation.
You can't just buy a car and spray-paint it. This is called car-jacking, and it is a crime. It is against the law for you to steal a vehicle, even if you are using it for a purpose that is legal.
Q: I am not sure if my drug test will reveal marijuana or cannibas use. Will a urine drug test reveal drugs?
A: In most states, a urine drug test will reveal use of any legal drugs, such as pot, over-the-counter drugs, and legal prescription drugs, like hydrocodone. If the test shows a positive for marijuana use, a search of the car will not be conducted. In a state where marijuana possession is illegal, the search will occur.
Q: Does a police officer have the right to stop a person and search his or her car for illegal drugs? Can they walk up to someone and ask him to empty his pockets?
A: Usually, police officers have the right to stop a person for a crime if they have a "reasonable suspicion" that a crime is being committed. That is the standard in most states. In the states where the search is not allowed, an officer would have to have probable cause to search the car. This is usually a higher standard, but police officers can work to meet it.
Q: My girlfriend has a DUI. What should I do? Is there any way for me to protect her?
A: If she is in jail, talk to a lawyer. Most lawyers will charge a certain amount for this service, but they can probably negotiate it down. This will likely require payment up front, but she is going to need an attorney to help her get out of jail, if she is convicted. You can talk to a lawyer about whether you should take a test for your own safety.
Q: My girlfriend is a nurse. She is in the middle of her shift when she gets pulled over. She took a drug test at work, and it tested positive for marijuana. What can I do?
A: First, you need to make sure your girlfriend has a clean test at work. She did not provide you with any proof of this.
Second, if she was using marijuana to get high at work, it's not going to help you to know. If you were in the car with her when she was using marijuana, or she used marijuana at home, then you can be arrested.
If she just used it to relax or have a snack, it would not be a criminal offense. In most states, you can carry around as much marijuana as you want.
Q: I was pulled over by a state trooper. He searched my vehicle and found some THC oil and two joints. I was wondering if I can get this evidence thrown out of court.
A: If you were in your car, in your house, or in a hotel room where you legally possessed the drugs, the items will not be allowed as evidence in court. This means that if a prosecutor wants to use these items against you, they will not be allowed in court.
If your girlfriend is pulling over on her way home and is just smoking pot at that time, it is possible that she can destroy or discard the items, but that does not mean that you can't get caught with them later.
Q: I am not even sure what THC oil is. Is it a schedule 1 drug?
A: THC oil is a drug that comes from a plant. It is used for medicinal purposes, and it can contain a significant amount of THC. If you were found to be in possession of it, you will likely be arrested and could be charged with a felony.
It can vary in price. It is less expensive than marijuana. Some patients are using it as a way to test out the "high" of marijuana. There is
