A Court of Appeals in Dayton, Ohio recently issued an opinion which essentially found that if you get pulled over for tinted windows (and you can get pulled over for just that), and the police officer claims to smell burnt marijuana, that officer can then conduct a "pat down" of your person for weapons and also conduct a quick search of the car compartment for drugs. Further, if the officers finds that you have even a small amount of marijuana on your person, that officer can then search your person further for any other drugs. In this case, that further search located some crack cocaine. The Court of Appeals found that the pulling over of the car and the search for drugs in the car and on the defendant's person was permissible. Suggestion: Get rid of the tinted windows. With some police officers, you are just begging to get pulled over and searched.
