my friend said he didn't have anything illegal in his possession, but apparently that was a lie. he had a controlled substance called "hash" in a backpack of his, which was in my backseat. cops asked me if i had anything i shouldnt in the car before searching it, i said no, thinking there wasn't anything in the car. my friend has a previous record because he was caught selling drugs a year ago. i have no record & i've never been in any type of trouble before this. the cop asked me if it was my bag, and i said no because it wasn't. they asked my friend the same question and he said he didn't know whose bag it was. anyway, i got cuffed & went to jail. his fingerprints are all over the backpack/utensils used to smoke with.
