They will use evidence found on your person, in your car, in a home, or hotel room to show that the drugs were in your possession. When an officer searches a person, vehicle, or a dwelling they must follow strict procedures to ensure compliance with the state and federal constitution. If they fail to do so, the evidence can be suppressed and cannot be used against you.
