If you are arrested along with your roommate, you could be prosecuted under a principle known as “constructive possession,” which means you are complicit because you had some measure of control over the area in which the drugs were located.

If drugs are stored in areas equally accessible to all of the roommates, the police can assume that even innocent parties were involved in the selling or use of drugs. Beyond the legal consequences a University can impose discipline entirely independent of what the police or a prosecutor does.

What should you do if your roommate is selling drugs? If he gets caught, can you also get arrested just for living under the same roof? When it comes to illegal drugs, there are legal and practical concerns. Depending on your level of knowledge or involvement in your roommate's dealings, you could potentially be at risk of facing criminal charges.

Drugs, violence, and crime are often intertwined, as about 60 percent of people who are arrested test positive for illicit drugs at the time of their arrest, NCADD reports. While getting help for someone battling addiction is important, it is also vital to keep yourself safe.

In general terms, the legal definition of “possession” involves both knowledge and control. If A has drugs in his individually locked room, and B has no knowledge or control of those drugs or A’s room, then B can’t be convicted for possessing that...

If the drugs were hidden in the kitchen for example and only one of your roommates has a history of possessing that particular drug, you could likely be found not guilty. If drugs were found only in your roommate’s individual room, the police may not have any evidence to charge you, and a judge would likely dismiss charges if they are filed.

If you are around drugs, you may be arrested or ticketed to appear in court if law enforcement does not believe that the drugs aren't yours. If arrested, you have the right to say you need a lawyer and stay silent about the situation.

Going the other way, had your roommate concealed them in the door panels of the vehicle, it would be quite difficult to prove that you knew or should have known about them. Of course, the problem is one of credibility: even though you are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, will a jury reasonably doubt you knew about drugs or guns in your car, house, or other area over which you exercised control?

If you have a residence or other place where a controlled substance or narcotic – methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, oxycodone etc. – is found during an arrest, oftentimes, the district attorney will file charges of HS 11366.
