It's Erowid's 20th Anniversary!
Help us keep going for another twenty with a small donation?
Erowid is a global information resource. We're an educational non-profit working to provide an honest look at psychoactives. Accurate info is required in order to move forward with research, drug law reform, and safer use. This work is made possible by small donations and memberships (get our newsletter!).
Am I Under Arrest? Am I Free to Go?
Police in Modern America
  • Know your rights.
  • Always be polite and courteous to police.
  • Ask to call your lawyer: never talk about, admit or deny anything.
  • Do not consent to a search unless the police have a warrant. Be extremely clear.
  • Ask "Am I under Arrest? Am I Free to Go?"
