    Answered . Your friend needs a good attorney to explore his defenses and potential motion issues. Be very wary of any attorney willing to accept 'shrooms as payment, though. Any time there is a search of someone's home, there might be Fourth Amendment protections that could get the evidence thrown out. Contact some attorneys privately for more information.
