I am searching this car. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it.

http://www.theagitator.com

"I am not asking your permission. I know there's marijuana in this car." Nearly a half-hour into the traffic stop, after Fornal had already searched the car, a Venice police officer arrived with her dog. She and the animal searched the car, including the trunk, but found nothing. Fornal then searched McNeal at the roadside, patting him down and ordering him to remove his shoes and turn his socks inside out. Fornal's supervisor, Maj. Kevin Kenney, described that search as "going a little too far," though overall, he stands by the deputy's actions that night.

Prosecutor Defeated by Glaring Stupidity of Pot Laws

http://reason.com

During voir dire, the almost all white, middle-class, middle-aged jury went into full rebellion against the prosecutor stating that they wouldn't convict even if the client's guilt was proven beyond a reasonable doubt -- almost all of them! They felt marijuana should be legalized, what he does with it is his own business and that the jails are already full of people for this silly charge.

Jury acquits man in case of two plants groing on his property

http://www.readthehook.com

With a majority of Americans now saying they don't think pot should be illegal, the prosecution demanded that the jury entertain no effort to practice nullification.
