4th Amendment Rights
Most drug possession cases involve a search and/or seizure of the defendant. The 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees that no person in this country shall be subject to unreasonable searches or seizures at the hands of the State. Often, the way that the drugs were obtained is at issue based on case law surrounding the 4th Amendment. A successful challenge to the search or seizure can lead to the drugs being not admissible into evidence, and ultimately a dismissal of the case.
