The nose always knows

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

The nose knows.

But some defense lawyers think something stinks. Chesapeake, Virginia, police officers say they pull over drivers for pot, based on the smell of the illegal weed.

But Assistant Public Defender Matthew Taylor says it's preposterous that police could catch a whiff of weed from inside their patrol cars.

Taylor tried to get multiple drug charges against Deon Crudup tossed out of court passed on an illegal search.

The Virginian-Pilot reports a judge denied the request.

But the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union expects more legal challenges to an officer's schnoz as probable cause.
