I just watched your video on “5 Reasons You Should Never Agree to a Search” and reason number 5 prompted me to send you a quick mail.

I had purchased a disassembled 1974 Ford Ranchero from a guy and and set about the task of restoring it. I spotting a mint condition bench seat at a yard and promptly bought it.

The next day when removing the old bench seat I found a paper shopping bag, the old brown kind, stuffed up under the seat. In it contained about 2-3 pounds of weed. Granted it was as dry as the Sahara desert. (Been there some time I imagine.)

Had a police officer found it during a consented search I’m sure the courts would not care how old it was. Just that I had 2-3 pounds of weed in my car.

After I finished painting the car and re-assembling it I drove it to the guy I bought it from and told him about the bag. He stated he bought the car from the old lady across the street who owned it since new. You never know.
