Training & Experience
Citizen reports usually can't be the primary cause for a drug arrest. Unless you have special training or experience with drugs or drug users, the courts will say an arrest based only on your testimony isn't justified.
Since few citizens can meet the strict legal standards, officers who do have the training and experience must make their own observations and collect evidence the courts will accept. Both your rights and those of other people have to be protected in the process of stopping drug trafficking.
