Write back, and write the question in real English. The question sounds stupid because you are not telling the story. You were selling marijuana. If the person stole your wallet during the drug transaction, the police can seize your money in forfeiture.

You're question is very difficult to read and understand. It sounds like someone stole your wallet to buy $20 worth or marijuana, got caught, and now all of the money is being kept. If that is what is going on, they are holding the money as evidence and may seek forfeiture. You can hire an attorney to file a motion for return of property. If there are forfeiture proceedings, you can file as a real party in interest to have the money returned. You'll need a lawyer for that too.
