Drug possession means that you have control and custody of the illicit substance. Although this often means that the substance was found on your person (for example, in a pocket), this is not always the case. For example, if you’re travelling in a car and you know that there are drugs stored in that car’s glovebox, you might be charged with possession.
A common scenario in which drug possession charges occur is at music festivals. If you’re planning on going to a music festival, you should be aware that there are often drug detection dogs used by police at these festivals.
