Traffic stop can end in drug possession charges

The battle against drugs rages on in Georgia. Police are on alert and involved in active investigations in an attempt to stem the flow of drugs to area communities. A recent traffic stop led to an arrest for drug possession after the smell of marijuana was detected in the car.

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.
