I don't understand - I think you were arrested or cited for drug possession? If so, talk to your public defender and have them run hair sample tests on you to determine if you consume drugs (hair sampling tests for drugs in your system for three months).

Try www.attorneypages.com and then check his or her record at the Tennessee State Bar. This is if you would like to consult with a private criminal defense counsel instead of a public defender.
