Can a police/detective investigator put drug or substances or pharmaceuticals in a
Suspect food to help with their investigation ?
1 Answer from Attorneys
No. There is no lawful authority under the common law or any legislation which empowers a police officer to lace someones food during an investigation. Doing so would be an assault with a weapon.
