Odor of marijuana

CASE LAW UPDATE:  The odor of marijuana is difficult to beat.    

Where a defendant moved to suppress evidence gather during a traffic stop, arguing that officers could not have smelled marijuana while driving behind his vehicle, the officers testimony was credible, and their suspicion was particularized to his vehicle, so the District Court did not err in denying his motion to suppress.  Affirmed.

United States v. Shumaker, 20-3467, Smith, J.  Appealed from the United States District Court, Southern District of Iowa.

Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
