The questions they ask (such as: “Since you have nothing to hide, mind if I search the car?”) are meant to confuse and persuade people to say “yes” to a search.
If police officers ask you to let them search your body, your car, your luggage, your home or your personal effects, say NO. Do not consent to a search without first talking to a Massachusetts drug crimes attorney.
