Q: Can I be charged with possession if I borrowed my brother’s car and he has marijuana in the car? I was running errands in his car and I got pulled over because his tags were out of date and the officer found a roach in the car. Can I be charged if I didn’t know the roach was there? — Trey, Memphis, Tenn.

A: Trey, you can be charged. If that weed or roach is within your reach, or your possession, the police are not going to believe that it’s somebody else’s — we hear that story all the time. To avoid this from happening, you need to make sure your brother makes sure his stuff is out of the car, or don’t drive a vehicle where that can even be a possibility because you are in control of that car, and that means everything in that car is in your possession. — Pierce County Sheriff’s detective Ed Troyer

    Hey obviously you will be caught. It is obvious that whoever may be the driver, if he has illegal products in his vehicle, he will be detained. It is better that you take of those things and be safe.for details

    Start with the lens character: The Oakley lens etch should be a high caliber etching. Many cases the bogus sunglasses will have the lens etch shabbily stamped on the lens, by a process called as screen printing. The greatest way to tell if the lens etch is a screen print or an authentic imprint is to simply run your finger over the symbol. If you can’t feel anything at all, meaning the section the logo is stamped on feels the same as the remainder of the lens, then that is probably a cheap screen print. Nevertheless, if you run your finger over the lens and you can feel the ridges and the texture of the etch, then that is presumably a perfectly stamped logo. However, the ability to sense the logo does not inevitably mean that the glasses are genuine, but not coming to sense the stamp DOES signify that Oakley sunglasses are bogus. This is a good initial test that takes a second to do, and it will speedily weed out many of the bogus right out of the gate, no more time wasted. cheap oakleys wholesale
