I hope you asked for a lawyer before you said much. It's the cops job to find a reason to ticket or arrest you.
I guess this boils down to this: did he have probable cause to pat you down, if you had the proper documentation for medical possession?
He should have had his station run down the phone number to see if it was a legit clinic, and then confirm that you were a legit patient by letting
you authorize your doctor over the phone to tell the officer about you case and treatment.
Question: had you been toking while driving? What are the laws for toking and driving even under medical prescription? Would that enable probable
cause for a pat down? I have no clue.
Unless there is a problem with the probable cause thing, it seems possession of the knucks is cut and dried.
