and your vehicle
- The controlled substances were not in your possession
- The controlled substances belonged to someone else
- The controlled substance has been approved or has been exempt for investigational
purposes under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
- Entrapment due to the involvement of an confidential informant or undercover agent
