What is Constructive Possession and Why Can you Help me Get My Case Dismissed if I Only Constructively Possessed the Drug?

When the drugs are not on your person (for example, in your pocket), but are found in a car, in a bedroom, on the ground, etc., and your do not make any statements indicating knowledge of the drug (or your statements are found to be inadmissible), this is known as constructive possession.   For a better understanding of why, see what a prosecutor has to prove for the judge to find you guilty of drug possession.  With the proper objections and legal argument, it is much, much harder for the prosecution to prove a constructive possession case.
