Is there a way to retract a statement I said during my arrest if I wasn’t read my Miranda rights?

I may have not been too happy when I got picked up for possession and said a few choice things I should not have. The cop never read my Miranda rights about anything I say blah blah blah. Can they use the stuff I said against me still? Can I take it back?

    You should know your constitutional rights to remain silent and to have a lawyer present while being interrogated. Your lawyer will run a Huntley Hearing to try to get the statement suppressed.

    No you can't take it back. Also they do not have to read you Miranda unless they plan to question you about the matter AFTER the arrest.

    That would be an issue for a judge to decide in a suppression hearing.

    Miranda only applies to confessions or admissions of guilt, not to statements such as cursing or swearing to the officers. If the statements are directly related to the possession charge, your lawyer may file a motion to suppress statements, otherwise, forget it.
