Theme Ideas
I just had my first felony case put on my desk this morning. The case is set to go to trial this coming Thursday.

It is a POCS "trace" case involving methamphetamine. The meth residue was found inside a pipe. The defendant claimed ownership of the pipe and the pipe was found while a search warrant was being executed on the house.

I'm looking for ideas to get the jury fired up about meth residue on the inside of a pipe. I keep coming back to the idea that "a little bit goes a long way". I figure I will tell the jury that this is only a trace amount of methamphetamine but that any presence of this drug in our community is a serious issue worth their time an attention.

I'm not sure how something like that would go over with a jury though. Any thoughts or suggestions of themes that have gone well in similar cases in your county would be appreciated.

A trace in his pipe means he already smoked it.
