Since drug possession is a federal crime, getting arrested for possessing illicit drugs is serious. Additionally, the higher the amount of drugs in your possession, the more complicated your situation is. While there’s still a chance to get off the hook after your arrest, some mistakes can adversely affect your case.
Here are some mistakes you shouldn’t make when arrested for drug possession.
- Speaking without your criminal attorney present
- Talking the cops into releasing you
- Writing anything down as it can be used against you
- Eating your drugs
- Being dishonest
