A: In order to understand your case as best as possible, you need to hire a lawyer. An experienced criminal defense attorney will make sure you are properly defended against all charges. You may have a potential suppression issue in your case--i.e. the officer needs a lawful reason to search your vehicle to find the drug instruments. You may qualify for a public defender (depends on your income), but deciding between a public defender or private counsel is a matter of personal preference.
