“I want my mom” is not an acceptabe legal strategy.

Note: Pennsylvania v. Mimms, 434 U.S. 106 (1977), is a United States Supreme Court criminal law decision holding that a police officer ordering a person out of a car following a traffic stop and conducting a pat-down to check for weapons did not violate the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

  1. I love how everyone that is stopped by a police officer is now a expert on the law based on binge watching “Law and Order.” Yes, police officers have used the “I smell marijuana” ruse as justification for an illegal search. However, the time to fight that assertion is in the courtroom, not on the side of the road in the middle of the night. As my dear departed mom told me when I first got my drivers license, “Be polite, be respectful, and do what the nice policeman says.”

    1. Also, claiming that the cops lied when they claimed to smell marijuana only works if both of the people in the car did not have large amounts of marijuana on them.
