MI: Def’s lying about smell of MJ was PC despite state’s medical MJ law

Defendant’s lying about the smell of marijuana in his car was probable cause that he was in possession of more than the amount permitted under the state medical marijuana law. People v. Moorman, 2020 Mich. App. LEXIS 1111 (Feb. 13, 2020).

“To sum up: in this opinion, we have decided that the city of Monroe’s “disturbing the peace” ordinance is not unconstitutionally vague; that, because Sergeant Booth had probable cause to issue a summons under the ordinance, he was entitled to qualified immunity from Roy’s First Amendment retaliation claim; and that, in the light of these holdings, Roy cannot prevail on his claims under the Fourth Amendment and Due Process Clause.” Roy v. City of Monroe, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 4766 (5th Cir. Feb. 13, 2020).*
