What kind of drug case do I have?
What can be challenged in a drug case?
The Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution provides protection against illegal searches and seizures from your home, your car, your business, and you. Whether the police had reasonable suspicion to stop you or probable cause to stop and search you is an issue that could lead to a legal challenge in your drug case.
Other challenges can be made, like whether the police followed the proper chain of custody, whether the substance the police seized was in fact a real illegal drug, and whether the drug lab conducted the proper test or used the correct testing methods.
