No you should stay out of this.No need for you to be involved, they might try to charge you here.The person was carrying it, it is presumed his, it is his liability.No need to involve yourself in this.He cannot legally hold drugs for you , he has no prescription here, he was in possession.Honestly I don't think he can beat this claiming you told him to hold it.Just tell him you are taking your fifth amendment rights to say nothing.This is not your problem, don't get into it.I just cannot see you getting into this.Again they might involve and charge you , they could claim you were dealing.Again say nothing here, you aren't involved, let it stay that way.You have right to say nothing and stay out of this.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
