Many people choose to use drugs in the privacy of their own home for health concerns, recreational use, or other reasons.

It is against the law to posess any illegal substance. The Supreme Court has ruled, “We have said that the Fourth Amendment draws a firm line at the entrance to the house.” The final component of this is, if law enforcement has probable cause, they have the legal right to search your home and, if they find any illegal substances, you can be arrested and tried on drug posession charges.
