Know Your Rights

In order for you to avoid being exploited, tricked, and abused by government agents, it is essential that you know how to exercise and protect your legal rights.

While it is true that the U.S. Constitution prohibits the government from violating your right to remain silent, to consult with an attorney, and to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures by law enforcement, it is up to you to avoid waiving these rights.

Go to FAQs “What should I do when confronted by a police officer?” and “How do I invoke my Constitutional rights?” to find out how to avoid waiving your rights.

The information in those FAQs are updated and expanded versions of summaries Tom Dean originally prepared for NORML, which continues to publish this information in its “NORML Freedom Card”.  Tom recommends that you print these summaries out and keep them with you so that you can refer to it if and when you are stopped by the police.
