In this video, Defense Group attorney Hal Uhrig answers the question of whether or not you can be charged with possession if you have drugs in your system. Interestingly enough, if the police tries to charge you with possession solely because they find evidence of drug use in your bloodstream or urine, they will not be able to charge you with a felony. For example, if they find cocaine in your bloodstream but not anywhere else on you, they will not be able to charge you with possession of cocaine. However, if they find a removable container of cocaine inside you, they can charge you with possession.
