Should someone not in actual possession of a drug be able to be charged, especially if officers cannot prove the person knew the other had drugs on them?

It's pretty stupid... What's next arresting people for smelling marijuana at a concert?

Our drug laws are ridiculous. The amount of money we spend putting away the druggies is not worth the little to no change it causes.

Of information's little sketchy Rose but if they were high on it. Or if there were reliable witnesses then I would vote yes. For this I voted no.

No, they aren't high. And no reliable witnesses (nothing that would be accepted in court).

How could they? What's the crime?

Currently, law says yes in at least some cases. But it could be argued, maybe the guy at top didn't have any on him at the time of arrest. Not sure exactly, interested to hear opinions.

As you've stated the case, no.

Referring to what? Paraphernalia charges?

Paraphernalia, no. Possession of the illegal substance, yes.
