actually, the guy i saw was recco'd me by a friend that is a non local DA, and he seemed pretty cool as far as lawyers go

His offers seemed reasonable, i just wasn't sold on my risk being worth the potential reward, so i'd like to see if he would take on the work and the risk, seeing as how there might not be much work involved

He did seem upset as to how informed i was, when i was reeling off codes and references from the top of my head, he seemed like he was threatened by me being informed (and why shouldn't he be, isn't that what lawyers profit from in the first place? hiding/obfuscating information?)

I'll let him sweat thinking about the money another day and then drop hi a call and see if we can do it on contingency.  thanks for the help fellas

is it any wonder the system is so fucked and so many people disregard it's legitimacy, when things are the way they are. The lawyer even said with a smirk that "there is the way we'd like things to be and the way they are" or something along those lines

How about some simplicity in the law, so that everyone can understand it, otherwise how do you expect to have people respect laws that, aside from being unjust in the first place, have no definitive concreteness and are impossible for an average citizen to navigate. But if that happened, how would all the rent-seeking parasite scum that profit from that industry survive?

Well, why bother asking the questions then if you don't think you can get an honest and fair answer.

As for your first statement, you are half right. All circuits now hold that the probable cause for a search warrant requirement is obsolete in the face of exigent circumstances. It could be argued that the smell of marijuana presented such, although the home still retains the highest form of protection.

It is more of an open question as to whether a search warrant is necessary when probable cause exists, although if that were true, the Constitution would seem obsolete.

Those damn right wing acitivist justices.

update

i walked on that first lawyer. just wasn't digging the cut of his jib. gave up all hope on the deal, but bumped into a friend who is seeing an attorney, she twisted his arm to take me on the cheap + contingency. they already offered to settle 50/50, and i accepted. like most of us, i see money and it makes all the wrongs in the world, right. However, it stings me as to how the world works when it comes to something like this. The justice system chewed me up and spit me out, and the end result is as unjust as it gets. They helped make sure a card carrying member of the board got some scratch, and now they can invest the rest of the loot, into further harming other MJ users. sigh
