"A new bill in Maryland aims to stop police from conducting searches based on the smell of cannabis during traffic stops. It comes several months after voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum, making recreational marijuana legal. Supporters argued in yesterday's Senate judicial proceedings committee hearing that allowing police to conduct a search base solely solely on the smell, creates an opportunity for selective enforcement.
