When defending drug cases, including those involving marijuana, our strategy is to attempt to have the evidence against you suppressed or excluded. Evidence of marijuana or other drugs can be thrown out if it was discovered or seized from a person, home, hotel room, cell phone, purse, or vehicle in a way that violated your constitutional right to freedom from unlawful search and seizure. No evidence = NOT GUILTY.
