A Gainesville Police Department officer conducted a traffic stop and made contact with the driver. As the driver was retrieving his information, the officer detected the plain odor of cannabis. The driver consented to a search of his vehicle and the officer discovered a plastic bag containing a green leafy substance and a multicolored glass pipe inside the glove compartment. The substance tested positive for cannabis and was approximately 14 grams in weight.
The driver was arrested and charged with possession of less than 20g of cannabis and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The driver, who had already retained Meldon Law on unrelated charges, retained our services for assistance with this matter. After discussing the evidence and circumstances with the State Attorney’s office, the State agreed to drop all the charges against the driver.
