    Well I'd LIKE to see the law consider the smell of marijuana to be "reasonable suspicion" that a crime is taking place or has recently taken place in that vehicle, and put the burden on the motorist and passengers to announce that they have LEGAL marijuana, with whatever card or license or permission is necessary in that state. I'd assume that even in states were weed is legal, and taxed, you still need to get the State's approval to grow it, smoke it, etc. And I'd assume a lot of people do NOT bother going the legal route.
