That's some good advice. Basically if you don't traffic in marijuana, you don't drive around with it in your car and you don't smoke in public, you're not going to get arrested for possession alone. As a black man I'm especially sensitive to the crime of Driving While Black, but there are certain realities that we have to deal with even as we work to change them. Having cool purple ground effects and flashy lights on your car with enamel melting bass may look cool to some, but to the police it's basically "Here! Over here! look at me! Find some probable cause!" This is a poor type of car to have weed ANYWHERE near- but mostly people who transport small amounts of pot in airtight containers in places that are not accessible to the passenger compartment only get in trouble if there is a separate independent reason that give the police probable cause to search, or if they are just dicks, or if the police are dicks, or a combination of all three. The other fun way that people get caught are those people who choose to have grow rooms but also choose to have burglar alarms- alarm drops, police and/or fire respond, and the magic happens.... It's hard to argue "personal use" when you've got a dozen phenotypes among 100 plants growing in a room in the basement. In any event, common sense is your best friend. Minor possession of marijuana is such a trivial offense in my jurisdiction that the police don't really want to even be bothered with it. Don't give them a reason to and they'll leave you alone for the most part.
