How to Beat a Traffic Stop With Drugs in the Car

Written by Mr Hyde
Pulled Over With Drugs in the Car

How to Handle a Traffic Stop When Drugs Are Involved

What to do When Pulled Over With Drugs in the Car

People get pulled over every day for having drugs in the car. Most of these people make the wrong decisions during their traffic stop, leading to drug charges, and sometimes even worse: actual incarceration. Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to things like traffic stops. While not every situation will wind up with a favorable outcome, it is in one's best interest to abide by the best plan, most known to result in a successful outcome. That said, many people ask "What are my rights if I get pulled over?" and that's a question everyone should know the answer to.

Your Rights When You Get Pulled Over (with or without drugs in the car)

Police do not have the right to search your vehicle without a valid reason. A vehicle search is a huge leap to make when the officer is only standing on a minor infraction such as a "taillight out" or a minor speeding ticket. With that said, never give the officer the go ahead to search your vehicle. Even on the street, police can stop you but cannot search you without reason. Some states provide extra protection to vehicles, which requires the office to have a valid reason to stop the vehicle at all. Additionally, most states have law requiring the officer present their identification when approaching a person or vehicle.

Recap: It is illegal for the police to search your property, belongings, vehicle, person, without a valid reason.

Sometimes, the police suspect that a driver may be under the influence of a drug. However, the officer will still need to have reasonable probable cause in order to request the driver comply with a chemical test of any kind (breath, urine, or blood). In order to determine if a driver is impaired, the officer may ask the driver to comply with a conduct a field sobriety test. Most of society believes this test is mandatory, and refusal to comply will lead to automatic arrest; However, the field sobriety test is IN ITSELF, the officer's attempt at collecting probable cause for a chemical test. It is not against the law to decline the field sobriety test (the physical response tests both in and outside of the car, including both not limited to walking the line and reciting the alphabet).

The officer is permitted to ask the driver to exit the vehicle. The officer is also permitted to conduct a weapon pat down; However, this pat down is only intended to locate weapons. Police will oftentimes make their requests appear to be mandatory, however, the 4th amendment provides United States citizens the right "to be secure in their persons and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures," and further illustrates that warrants shall only be issued with probable cause. If the officer asks you to remove any clothing, or do anything you are uncomfortable with, alert the officer of your discomfort, and be aware of your right to remain silent. It is still suggested to always remain polite.

Notice: It is okay to ask an officer if his or her request "is a request or an order."

What You Should Do If You Are Pulled Over With Drugs In the Car

According to the lawyers, there are a set of guidelines to follow if you are pulled over with drugs in the car. These guidelines are suggested to give you the best chance, statistically, at walking away without a drug charge.

Still, there are a variety of variables to consider which cannot be determined ahead of time. Some of these variables may include whether the officer was capable of actually seeing the device used to produce a cloud of smoke, or whether or not a tossed joint was retrievable before approaching the vehicle. For that reason (and others), it is suggested to never throw the joint out the window.

Drug and Scenario-Specific Strategies for Dealing With Traffic Stops

Everything scenario is a little different and depending upon the situation and the drug, the strategy may slightly change. Here is a list of the common situations:

What to do if You Get Pulled Over With Marijuana (weed!)...

Marijuana is pretty easy to smell, even before it is smoked. For that reason, it is in your best interest to not have that marijuana by the time the officer is at the window. It is safe to ingest weed, and thus, eating it may be a good plan, if you are dealing with less than an eighth. Keep in mind that marijuana is accepted by much more of society than harder drugs, and thus the penalties will most likely end up lighter (even if a conviction results from the traffic stop when all is said and done).

What to Do If You Get Pulled Over With Cocaine (coke!)...

Cocaine is a little easier than weed...however, is more notoriously punished. While most of the time "playing it cool" will work during a traffic stop, bear in mind that cocaine is water soluble. Any reasonable amount of water will completely dissolve the cocaine from the naked eye. Having a half-filled water bottle in the vehicle is oftentimes safety enough!

What to Do If You Get Pulled Over With Heroin (smack!)...

Heroin is a tough drug to dispose of quickly. It cannot be ingested in large amounts, and often requires a number of paraphernalia by which to administer the drug. However, the smell of heroin is not easily detectable by the human nose...so unless a drug dog is present, the police would need to physically see the heroin to create probable cause. Keeping the drug, needles and any other paraphernalia out of sight is generally enough to avoid giving the officer probable cause.

What to Do If You Get Pulled Over While Smoking Pot (or after "hotboxing")...

In this circumstance, the police will most likely approach the vehicle with the warm-brewing desire of issuing a "DWI" (or Driving While Intoxicated). The DUI/DWI laws vary from state to state, however, these are usually the more frowned upon violations (in society), as society notoriously seeks justice for public endangerment. The police are part of society, and usually greatly frown upon smoking pot while driving. Smoking and toking while driving is something the police like to THINK is a principle offense. In other words, if the officer believes weed is being smoked in the car, they may believe they have a primary offense by which to pull over the vehicle (in any state, no matter what the inspection laws are), and will begin making the leap to having PC (probable cause). PC allows the officers to more easily search the vehicle. Truthfully however, the officer smelling marijuana smoke alone is not enough to warrant probable cause. As one officer put it, in many cases, the officer relies upon the driver to simply grant permission for the search to take place.

Recap: The officer needs more than smelling weed, even in your car, to warrant a search and blood test.

What to do If You Are Pulled Over by a K-9 Police Dog Unit...

The police K9 units are special for a lot of reasons, however, most important being: the unit was designed specifically to seek out and arrest drug violators. Clearly that is bad news for anyone with drugs in the car pulled over by a canine unit. K9 units treat the smell of marijuana differently than a normal police unit, as the dog becomes a "tool" by which the officer uses to detect the presence of marijuana. Because dogs possess almost 300 million more olfactory receptors than humans, they are commonly used in traffic stops. And unfortunately, the 4th amendment does not cover a drug dog smelling weed (ruled in United States v. Place, 462 U.S. 696 (1983)); and the police do not require a warrant nor probable cause to introduce a drug dog to the scene. Still, many lawyers have suggested the best bet in court will come down to how little the driver has said during the traffic stop itself. After all, as the saying goes "when in doubt, staying silent is always the best route!"

Final Notes and Traffic Stop Tips

Be polite when declining to comply with any particular request an officer makes. There is no need for the situation to become any worse, or to give an officer a more personal reason to feel vindicated.

A police officer may make probable cause out of unusual driver behavior (both and/or either during driving and during the traffic stop itself).

Being silent or refusing to answer an officer's questions does not mean an admission of guilt.

If an officer makes a request or inquiry which creates an uncomfortable vibe, it is well within the rights of the driver to remain silent.

Remember, probable cause gives the officer the right to search the car, trunk, glove box, locked box, and/or person without a warrant. The name of the game here is to reduce the ability to draw probable cause as greatly as possible.

Think of silence as a tool and whenever you do not know what to do, staying silent is always better than saying something incriminating.

If you are a passenger and the officer asks everyone to step out of the vehicle, personal belongings are at stake. If a passenger leaves a personal belonging in the vehicle (such as a purse) and the vehicle is to be searched, the personal possessions of the passengers will be included in the search. However, if these possessions are carried out of the vehicle by the passengers, the officer will need special probable cause and possibly a warrant to search the possessions (purse, bag, etc).

Smart Drugs Proven to Help You Score Better On Exams and Other Tests

Written by Mr Hyde
Smart drugs proven to improve cognitive ability and test scores

Are There Smart Drugs that can Improve Test Scores?

Do Smart Drugs Really Work?

One of the first things people wonder after hearing about smart drugs is "Can I use smart drugs to improve my studying and get better test scores?" Movies like Limitless (Bradley Cooper) have glorified fictional drugs such as NZT, as smart drugs which can unlock one's potential to access and use their entire brain and all its potential! While NZT may not be a real drug, similar drugs do exist. Real smart drugs exist and remain legal in the United States and around the world. And real smart drugs work to help the brain function at its maximum potential. And yes, smart drugs can be used to improve studying and improve testing scores on exams, standardized tests and other assessments. In fact, there are already several proven studies which have indicated exam and test takers are at a significant advantage when taking smart drugs before an exam.1

The fact of the matter is, cognitive enhancement by way of nootropics and smart drugs has become such a major issue at major universities, that the collective staff, board, and even individual professors alike, have begun worrying about the "unfair advantage" it provides dosing students. The hardest obstacle?: smart drugs cannot be found on a drug test. Students are able to take as much as they want, and professors never know. Many professors advocate the development of a drug test to detect a smart drug...which would mean students urinating into a cup before taking a test. This is a far-fetched plan which is never going to happen, leaving students free to continue to consume smart drugs for studying and before taking an exam.2

Ultimately, neither the professors nor universities can stop students from taking smart drugs. And there are many reasons for students to want to use smart drugs. Besides the fact that they usually have no side effects whatsoever, are completely organic and safe, smart drugs have also been proven to increase test scores. In fact, several studies have revealed exam and test score increases of easily up to and over 25 percent from the use of smart drugs and cognitive enhancing nootropics;2 and digging deeper revealed some sources indicating it was possible to improve test scores by as much as 50 PERCENT!

Studying With Smart Drugs: What Smart Drugs Improve Test Scores & Test Taking

So, what smart drugs will help improve cognitive function, enhance studying and improve test taking abilities, ultimately leading to higher test and exam scores? Although there are many cognitive enhancers which can improve test taking, a few stand out as the strongest forerunners, leading the way, Ivy League-style!

#1 Huperzine A - Best Cognitive Enhancer, Nootropic, "Smart Drug" for Studying & Test Taking

Huperzine A is the absolute hottest smart drug and cognitive enhancer as it provides the biggest brain boost. Nearly anyone who tries a reputable Huperzine product will swear by its ability to improve test taking and exam scores. Huperzine A lets the brain reach its maximum potential and has been dubbed the "smartest drug for studying and test taking," and that's even better than Adderall!

Here is a study of a sample of 6 student testing scores with the same amount of studying, and keeping each environment as close as possible throughout each trial (same breakfast, same day of the week, same time of the day, same amount of overall preparation, same lighting, same testing room, etc):

All 6 students saw significantly better exam scores after taking Piratall 30 minutes before the test.3

#2 Bacopa Monnieri - Brain Relaxer and Cognitive Stress Relief

Bacopa Monnieri is a natural brain relaxer and allows the mind to reach a calmed state...absolutely perfect right before a test. It is a natural stress-reliever and allows the brain to function in a clear and level state. It also provides minor memory and concentration enhancements. While Bacopa Monnieri is taken very well by itself, it also works great with Huperzine A.

Here is a study of a sample of 4 students testing scores with the same amount of studying and keeping each environment as close as possible throughout each trial:

All 4 students scored better after taking Pirate Relief 30 minutes before the test. Most students claimed the biggest advantage was having zero stress. Although Pirate Relief is an organic smart drug, one student claimed it was "better than xanax and I was much smarter than my normal brain power can provide on its own."3

#3 Lion's Mane - The Ancient Mental Enhancer

Although it is not as strong or effective as a good Huperzine a smart drug, Lion's Mane Mushroom (Hericium erinaceus) has been used for centuries to enhance the memory and improve overall brain function. Just like Huperzine a, however, there are many preparations of Lion's Mane Mushroom. It is important to find the correct manufacturer or supplier/vendor, who can provide an extract specific for cognitive enhancement.

#4 Ginkgo Biloba - The Underestimated Memory Enhancer

Ginkgo Biloba is a hidden gem and goes massively underestimated. Although it is nowhere near as powerful or capable as the above mentioned smart drugs, it absolutely possesses intensified focus and drastically improves attention-span. It is also a well known memory enhancer.

Taking Smart Drugs to Improve Test Scores

Achieving the brain's greatest potential means giving it resources and "brain food" that it cannot naturally produce on its own. Smart drugs are a way to get these "special resources" to the brain, so that it can unlock its truest and greatest potential. Ultimately, smart drugs really do work to improve studying, increase focus, enhance the formation of new memories, increase calculation and memory recall speeds, and "access" the brain's fullest potential!
