IL: Even with recreational MJ, smell in a car can provide PC; pre-rec precedent adhered to

Even with recreational marijuana, it has to be transported in odor proof containers, and that means the smell of marijuana remains probable cause in Illinois. People v. Hall, 2023 IL App (4th) 220209, 2023 Ill. App. LEXIS 12 (Jan. 25, 2023).

One officer was on a Brady list for suspect testimony before, but, on the whole, the state’s suppression hearing testimony on reasonable suspicion for a stop and detention, evaluated in detail, favors the state. Motion denied. State v. Jackson, 2022 Del. Super. LEXIS 1459 (Dec. 28, 2022).*

Defendant’s disclaiming interest in a cell phone found to contain child porn was abandonment. State v. Copley, 2023 Mo. App. LEXIS 24 (Jan. 24, 2023).*
