The seventh annual Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival rolled out its most diverse lineup yet for 2008, with Metallica, Pearl Jam, Kanye West, Willie Nelson, Jack Johnson and My Morning Jacket among the acts on the bill for the June 12-15 event in Manchester, Tenn. We hope everyone who was in attendance enjoyed the show and made it home safely.
We have had several calls already to our office regarding people who were stopped, searched, and charged with drug crimes on their way to and back from the show. Even when driving to and away from Bonnaroo, you always have the right to be free from illegal search and seizure. Calls with people arrested for possession of marijuana (marihuana), mushrooms, ecstacy, lsd, etc. are common to our office both during and immediately following the show. There are lots of things the police might do to trick you into giving up these rights (like threatening to call drug sniffing dogs), but you always have the right to say no to illegal searches.
