NYPD officers can no longer search a vehicle due to the smell of marijuana alone

(Thanks to Steve K, who says "Leave the windows down, dude.")

So take this as a warning not infuse your Key Lima Bean Pie with edibles, or be prepared to suffer the consequences.

Pay no attention to suspected DUI drivers.

The headline makes it sound like the officers are unable to conduct the search because of the effects of their own marijuana smoke.

How about the smell of Doritos?

I predict they will all quote a former fearless dear leader: "I didn't inhale."

How about if there is a dead cat in the trunk(boot)?s

I hang a bunch of garlic on my rear view mirrors. The smell keeps away vampires, police and potential car-jackers.

Given the state of events, I'm suprised the police would stop anyone. Head to the doughnut shop and chill out.

Well, that intimidates me because I have hemp seat covers. Even though the smell is not enough, the NYPD will find something else!

...The new law allows adults 21 and older to possess up to 3 ounces of cannabis and 24 grams of cannabis concentrate, though it must be bought from authorized sellers... Though? How about 'and it must be bought'.

Once again, pent-up here at home, the virus running amok, we are treated to poor grammar.

@Bill - sorry - I have to disagree with you on this one. "Though" is fine and its use actually serves a purpose - to highlight the requirement that the substance be procured from a licit source.

What if he's from Barthelona, and meant "toe"?

@cfjk - good point, but that brings in grammatical body parts of speech in which I have no expertise.

Someone should develop a strain of Mary-J that smells like fresh doughnuts just to torment the po-po.

Last weekend, I drove by a very large, legal grow complex owned by multiple Hollywood actors. This was not your average greenhouse in the backyard. Think industrial warehouses, blocks long. The smell was stronger than going to a rock concert. I'd write more about it, but I'm suddenly in the mood for junk food.....

That should make the popcorn concession stands at the movie theaters (when they reopen) a bit more popular. Paul Newman died too soon.
