After a sobriety test, the officer asked me if he'd find anything illegal, I said no, he then felt my pockets and pulled out a baggy of marijuana, I didn't consent to a search, and I thought they couldn't take out my personal property without asking ME to do so, (unless it be a weapon) , I showed no sign of danger that would even provoke him to search me, he placed me under arrest and stuck me in the cruiser without reading me my rights THEN asked me to consent to a drug test, which ("not knowing my rights to silence" I agreed to... is there a case here?
