Maybe. See your attorney.

Normally the police need a search warrant to search a car. BUT, there are many exceptions to the need for a warrant: search incident to arrest, misdemeanor committed in their presence, probable cause to believe a crime has been committed/ "criminal activity afoot", etc. The sell of marijuana may be enough, but mre facts are needed. Consult with a criminal defense lawyer in your area. www.kacdl.net
I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..
