Q) Can I be charged with drug possession when I am a passenger in a car containing drugs I don't own?
A) There is no legal distinction between drug possession and drug ownership. Therefore, if you know that an illegal drug is present in a vehicle and you can actively or constructively exercise control over the drug, the law makes you guilty of drug possession.
