    How can they charge him with meth if he already swollowed what they THINK was meth it could have been ANYTHING a piece of candy ect.. i’m just saying I believe in the law but that would be a unlawful under my book

      The police can drug test him (blood test) and if he has Meth in his system then he’s in possession of Meth. Just like having alcohol in your system at a DWI check point. Your book needs updating Jeffery.

      Get real Bob. Shall we apply the same amount of consideration to you and your situation? Most addicts will recover if they hit bottom and become productive members of society. It’s the calous backwards thinking you display that drives many people in the area to drugs.
