Once left it outside for someone to collect. He keeps it in his room
Expert:  Jo C. replied 7 months ago.

Thank you.

The short answer is that this is indeed a very dangerous situation.

Even on your own accounts, if you left it outside for somebody to collect then you are concerned in supply.

If the house were raided that it is quite unlikely that anybody would accept that you weren't involved and it is not worth the risk. Even if the police believed that he was the main dealer, suspicion would still be thrown up on you.

Can I clarify anything for you?
