Possession of Cannabis – Not Guilty

My client’s vehicle was stopped for speeding by the Skokie Police Department. When the officer came up to the car he smelled a strong odor of burnt cannabis. He asked my client to exit the vehicle. Upon searching the car, he found a bottle of whiskey, a container of brownish jelly like oil that smelled of cannabis, and a vaporizer pen that also smelled of burnt cannabis. My client was placed under arrest. My client did not want any form of supervision or probation and wanted to keep this off his record. I went to trial and the judge found my client not guilty on all counts.
