How a traffic stop can lead to a charge of drug possession

Drivers in Georgia who are pulled over by the police have the right to refuse to a search of the vehicle. An officer can request a search if he believes that there is reasonable cause to believe that the vehicle contains evidence of a crime. If the officer believes such evidence is present, for example drug possession, a warrant is not required, but the driver is still within his or her rights to refuse the search. The officer can perform a search without the driver's consent.

The war against the drug crisis is an ongoing one, and law enforcement is motivated to make progress against the scourge that is harming so many lives.
