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.

"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.

Jon iz teh kewl: 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)

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.

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


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.

ReapTheChaos: 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


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.

Jon iz teh kewl: Jorn the Younger: The American Government is waging a war against its own citizenry.

Can we charge the entire government with treason?

funny how they're ONLY catching the REAL criminals and not my hippie pot smoker type friends.


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.

You might wanna check out the Fully Informed Juror Association.

What you're talking about is called Jury Nullification and it is your right, but don't mention it before the trial... unless you want to get out of jury duty.

hbk72777: Yeah, don't blame the dumbass liberal who committed the crime that caused the events.


Well we wouldn't want an entire thread to go by without some douchey comment about "liberals". I was getting worried there for a minute.

No comments on this?

"The officer spoke to Robin Haider and found two marijuana pipes, a dugout and a digital scale in his possession."

I only know "dugout" as a baseball reference. What is it in this context?

If only there was some sort of animal with a keen sense of smell that could be trained to signal the presence of narcotics....

With the previlence of usage, merely smelling like marijuanna should not be probable cause. A simple ride on public transport, attending a concert, having an aquaintance that does use may be enough to pick up the scent.

Personally- if I wasn't a user, I'd get it out of the way and invite the officer in for a look see. There's no point wasting time and public moneys delaying the inevitable search over the time it takes to get a warrant, plus a show of goodwill toward the police actually goes a long way.

The whole thing reeks of small time dealers selling t o smalltime users and getting busted out in a small time way by small time officers. A $25 fine and 3 hours of picking up trash in an orange vest should be all thats needed to repair this mess.

shotglasss: 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.


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.

bel4sucks: ReapTheChaos: So legalize it and tax it. Problem solved, everyone's happy.

Yeah keep your government out of it. Decriminalize under a certain amount, don't claim adding 100% of the cost in tax makes anyone happy.


If it were legalized it would be cheaper, even after the tax, then it is currently.

Jon iz teh kewl: 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.!

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.

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.
