Can I get charged for drug paraphernalia?

Q: My friend and I hid our bowl in the woods, stupidly. When we came back later to look, a cop was at his neighbors. We are both 17 years old. We continued searching and the cop stopped us. We told him we were looking for my wallet, which is true. But the bowl was not there anymore and we searched multiple times. My question is, can I get into trouble for this? I know it’s possible, but will the cop go through the trouble if he didn’t question is right there on the spot? I’m a minor and I am freaking out awfully bad. I am never doing anything illegal ever again.

A: Unless there is a witness that will testify he or she saw you smoking or in possession of the bowl, I don’t see much of a case. The problem is, you don’t know what the evidence is. I suggest that you do not talk to anyone regarding this case. If you hear from the police, do not talk to them and consult with a lawyer as soon as you can.
