In Nashville there is actual drug possession and constructive possession. If I have weed in my pocket I am in actual possession. If the weed is in the car and I can reach it and I intend to reach it I can be in
constructive possession. How can they charge me with possession? You can be in the car with three friends and everyone gets arrested for the same weed. This scene can be played out in many other places. You are at a friends house. The music is too loud and the police are called. They come to the door and smell weed. They walk in. Some marijuana is one the coffee table and eight people are in the house. How can they charge me with possession? Who claims the weed? The police might say “if someone claims this weed we will let everyone else go.” Since no one wants to go to jail no one claims it. The police can charge everybody who was in the house because (a.) everyone could have come into physical possession of the weed – anyone could have put it in their pocket and, (b.) everyone was at the party had the intent to smoke the weed. Be careful!
