W.D.N.C.: Alleged distinction between smell of MJ and hemp not material here

The distinction between the smell of legal hemp and illegal marijuana wasn’t material where the officer testified he smelled marijuana. United States v. Harris, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164723 (W.D.N.C. Sep. 14, 2023).*

Defendant was speeding. The stop produced a warrant on him, and that’s inevitable discovery. United States v. Davis, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 24665 (6th Cir. Sep. 15, 2023).*

Exactly where the truck and trailer were parked on the property as “in front of” a building doesn’t really matter. “Given these facts, the Court finds that in a ‘practical and commonsense’ reading of the warrant’s language, the work truck was parked ‘in front of’ the Premises. Gallegos has not met his burden to demonstrate that the vehicle search went beyond the scope of the warrant.” United States v. Gallegos, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164730 (D.N.M. Sep. 15, 2023).*
