Maryland bill would end vehicle searches based on cannabis odor

February 3, 2023

Rusty Carr took to the podium in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee hearing room Thursday holding two glass jars. “Ladies and gentleman, I hold in front of you: hemp,” the Mount Airy resident said. “It’s also called cannabis, but this is legal and it’s not impairing. I invite you to smell it.” Carr was testifying in favor of a bill to stop warrantless vehicle searches by police that are based solely on the odor of cannabis.
