You need to more fully elaborate on the facts here.  You are on the lease but do you also live in the house?  Where did the police find the item in question - in a common area like the living room or in a bedroom?  Did the police have a search warrant?   Were you arrested or are you being investigated?  If you were arrested, on what charge exactly?  And, what license are you talking about?

More details would be helpful.

Thanks.
