Medical marijuana is legal. Can Florida cops still search your car if they smell pot?

396

If the pungent aroma of weed is wafting from your ride, South Florida cops usually have a green light to search your car. But with medical marijuana now allowed in Florida, along with some production of the similar-smelling hemp plant, a Miami man is challenging whether cops had the legal right to search his truck based on odor alone. The novel defense is being employed by Victor Chavez, who was found with a stash of marijuana hidden his truck in Southwest Miami-Dade last year.
