If the Cops Come Knocking, Don’t Flush
We need to be innovative on this one kids, here’s what to do. Get a bunch of lutefisk, cook it up and put a plate in each room. Turn the heat in your home on high and let that smell permeate the whole house. Now you can fire up and smoke to your brains out.
The Supreme Court yesterday took issue with the Fourth Amendment, the right of Americans to be secure “against unreasonable searches and seizures.”
The police do not need a warrant to enter a home if they smell burning marijuana, knock loudly, announce themselves and hear what they think is the sound of evidence being destroyed, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday in an 8-to-1 decision.
Consider yourself warned! This obviously means that you don’t flush your weed (or whatever else you’ve got cooking) down the toilet if the cops are knocking on your door. But you’re probably wondering, what’s the alternative? The key here is the whole “sound of evidence being destroyed” thing. So just make sure you quietly destroy whatever illegal items you have in your possession, if you must. Eat it, or toss it out of a window, or if you’re really desperate, just frame whoever is with you. Or just be really quiet and hope they go away. Good luck out there.
