Dude, the Dakotas are so boring, the government should be giving marijuana away to the folks up there.

Grensteiner's affidavit said she smelled like marijuana, so officers obtained a search warrant for her apartment.

Doesn't sound unreasonable if you buy into the war on drugs in general. People were there for pot, she smelled like pot.

The affidavit would not be sufficient where I live. Thanks to decriminalization for under an ounce, the law of Massachusetts says smelling like burnt marijuana is not probable cause but smelling like fresh marijuana is. The officer would need to explain why the amount in question was probably more than an ounce.

The American Government is waging a war against its own citizenry.

Can we charge the entire government with treason?

I hope the rest of her customers know these two clowns and bust their asses for getting the local dealer in trouble.

The Black Hills and Badlands are not boring. I took a vacation through there last year. Beautiful, though it may eventually get boring looking at natures wonders I could have used a few more days of it.

Your hippie pot smoker type friends likely haven't amassed vast material wealth the police like to confiscate and keep under the tenets of the War on (some) Drugs.

It's a cash-grab to the left, a power-grab to the right, and the regular citizenry just keep getting shafted, left, right and center.

"She smelled like weed" is pretty weak PC for a warrant. A cop could just say anyone smelled like weed. There's really no way to prove it one way or the other.

Cops are so full of shiat. I have jury duty this week and I hope to God that I get the chance to let somebody off of a drug charge. I don't care how guilty they are.

FTFA: According to an affidavit from Detective Loren Grensteiner, Robin Haider told an officer he and his brother were going to get some marijuana from the woman who lives in the apartment. They were hoping she would "front" them the drugs, because they didn't have any money.

Every weed dealer I've ever known does this all the time: "Okay, go get high as hell, then bring me back some money. Got it?"

Sorry but I don't think what someone "smells" like should be enough for a search warrant. It's one thing if they're operating a vehicle and you use that as a basis for a sobriety test, but a search? No.

I'm starting to wonder what this country is turning into where cops can get search warrants as well as do warrantless searches based on such flimsy bullshiat.

If a drug dog went apeshiat around a person it would be one thing because you have the supposedly unbiased, incorruptible testimony of the dog (maybe). But if any cop can just tell a judge that any random person "smelled like weed", we might as well skip the paperwork and just have unlimited warrrantless searches. It's the same thing.

a single "pot" hit lasts for longer than 3 weeks. therefore during all that time your stoned at work. making you irritable and unfriendly. like most pot smokers.!

It's hard to tax something that you can grow and consume on your property. If the gubmint can't get their hands in there somewhere to make a buck off of it, they'll bring in the jackboots and just take everything you have.

Maybe 'turning in' the old ladies with 200 cats and a hoard of garbage up to the rafters would solve 2 problems. The cops would clean out some houses and would get tired of needless search warrants.

if people are suing tobacco companies. you better bet they'd be suing heroin companies once that stuff is legalized (since pot is a GAYtway drug)

Except there's no actual evidence being presented, no way to disprove the accusation and no consequence for finding no drugs. It's a fishing expedition.

I'm about as pro marijuana as you can get but.... as far as probably cause/reason goes, this situation pretty much takes the cake. All that was missing was a joint tucked behind her ear.

If you don't want losers breaking in your house, guess what, you don't have to be a dealer that lies on your income tax form every year.

A K9 went apeshiat around me and some friends back when I was a teenager.

Looking back, I realize that those were very cool cops.

Growing and harvesting good weed takes time and effort. People typically don't grow their own tobacco even with the high taxes on cigarettes. The people I know who smoke everyday might have a couple of plants growing but most of their consumption is from buying it.

I used to think this but I'm not sure if I believe it anymore. Here in the SF bay area the medical dispensaries don't really sell weed cheaper than what you can buy on the street. But one does have quite a selection to choose from.

I'm sure the cops mentioned the burglary suspects' statements in the warrant application, as well as "she smelled like pot." Just bad reporting. There was plenty of probable cause.

You guys arguing to the contrary are as funny as the dealers who call the cops when their stashes are stolen and then are surprised to be arrested.

I know a lot of people who smoke but I don't know anyone who grows tobacco in their back yard. I have had a few friends who made their own beer and wine, but overall most people just buy it from the store. If you could just stop at the local 7-11 and buy a bag of it for a reasonable price, I doubt many people would bother growing their own.

I felt the same way driving from the east coast to the west coast. We planned to stop and look at interesting things; didn't find anything worth stopping for until South Dakota.

At least they haven't arrested the lady - yet. Follow up in six months.
