DC: PC from the fair inference def had more than the “permissible amount” of MJ

“From all the foregoing, Officer Lojacono could reasonably believe that there was a fair probability that the amount of marijuana he saw in the car exceeded the legally permissible amount” of two ounces. Thus, the automobile exception applied. Harris v. United States, 2021 D.C. App. LEXIS 285 (Oct. 7, 2021).

Defendant called the police because his girlfriend had apparently overdosed and was unconscious. The observations on the initial entry supported a search warrant under the independent source doctrine. United States v. Dang, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 30091 (6th Cir. Oct. 6, 2021).*
