    Answered . Anything is possible. What's not possible is to give an informed, accurate answer based on the information given. Anyone who knows what they're taking about and is not just trying to sell you something needs much more information about the details of the stop and search. Certainly, any lawyer is likely to file a motion to suppress the evidence seized and, if successful, your friend's chances of "get[ing] out it." Best advice is the obvious: find the best lawyer your friend and his family can afford and listen to his informed advice.

I would recommend contacting somebody as soon as you can to try and get a resolution as quickly as possible. Time is of the essence in drug cases and they must be treated as delicate matters. An attorney must be able to determine the evidence and facts as quickly as possible in order to try and get any evidence oppressed and any charges thrown out.

    Answered . Does he WANT to get out of it enough to spend whatever it takes to hire the best lawyer he can afford and put up the best defense? If so, then his chance are better than if he looks for the cheaptest and fastest way out. Guilty pleas are cheap and fast. Trials are not.

    Answered . Perhaps. I wonder how long it had been there. I wonder if there were any fingerprints on the tag. Who put the tag in place? The thing to do is hire a private attorney.
