Could THIS $5 Product Get You out of a Marijuana Bust?
Whenever an article headline is a question the answer is almost always “no” or “probably not”. This is just such an article.
Recreational cannabis is now the law in New Mexico and legalization in Texas is just a matter of time. But every day hundreds of people get cited for possession of minor amounts. And, guess what the officer usually cites as probable cause. “It smells like weed in here” is the easiest and most reliable case to make when establishing P.C.
So, I thought, “What if you had a product that WASN’T marijuana but could EXPLAIN the smell of marijuana”? Friends, I give you…
Marijuana scented air freshener. “But, why” I imagine you asking, “would you WANT your home/place of business/person to smell like marijuana?” Because it answers the question “why does it smell like weed in here?”
L.E.O.: “Have you been smoking any marijuana?”
YOU: “No, officer.”
L.E.O.: “Then why do I smell weed?”
YOU: “Because I really LIKE the way marijuana smells and that’s why I spray…(dramatically reveal the DANK brand air freshener)…THIS.”
L.E.O: “Welp…that answers my question. You have a nice day and drive safely sir/madam.”
Would this actually work in a real-life scenario? Attorney Justin Underwood says, “No…probably not.” I say we won’t know until someone field-tests it. So if anyone wants to try, please let us know the results.
