When traveling in fascitst states, I only have a joint at hand so it can be crushed and be tossed out the window. The rest is in a locked pelican case marked photography. I've heard they would need a warrant to open this box.

Taken a step further, put stash in a box labeled with postage. A local officer cannot open this package. .. it is a federal offense.

Good luck. I'd get a lawyer. You never know how this will follow you.

Thats a slippery slope with profiling sir. I can certainly say that "proper" states have big "unproper" problems; not to mention the meth problem is the real deal in those areas... But yeah, make sure those jail slots are full with non-violent pot smokers?

Most honest people from the mid-west and south I've met simply mind their business as long as you leave them alone...I believe it was explained to me as respect.

I've always had luck with just keeping it in my pocket, they can search the car all they want without a warrant and they do(personal experience). If its in your pocket they have to arrest you before searching. Never had a problem except back in high school, even in Monticello Utah! I like the postage idea though.

I'd eat the joint before tossing it.

From Caleb Mason's legal analysis of Jay-Zs 99 problems in the Saint Louis University Law Journal:
"If this Essay serves no other purpose, I hope it serves to debunk, for any readers who persist in believing it, the myth that locking your trunk will keep the cops from searching it. Based on the number of my students who arrived at law school believing that if you lock your trunk and glove compartment, the police will need a warrant to search them, I surmise that itís even more widespread among the lay public. But itís completely, 100% wrong."

This is an odd question, but I'll bite. As others have stated, probable cause is a huge part of the equation, was he openly smoking? Was paraphernalia visible? If not, the only inclination they had that your friend possessed marijuana had to have been based n the smell, which, of I understand correctly, hasn't stood up in court as probable cause for a search.

See Taylor vs United States (1932): Supreme Court said "...prohibition officers may rely on distinctive odors as a physical fact indicative of a possible crime."

Well, if you smoke pot in your car you are a bit on an idiot. Correct me if I'm legally wrong but cops don't need a warrant, they need probable cause to believe a crime has been committed or they are in danger.

I'm aware of one case involving a friend where the prosecuting attorney said the stop and subsequent arrest was illegal due to lack of probable cause and that they refused to try the case due to this. It was thrown out after 5 minutes when the judge agreed.

Cops break the law too, it all depends on if you have a reasonable judge and prosecuting attorney whether this matters or not.
