Highway Drug Dog Searches: Two Diverging Trends In The Case Law

Last year, in one of the Roberts’ court’s rare decisions not siding with law enforcement, the US Supreme Court ruled that police could not detain people pulled over for traffic violations in order to await the arrival of a drug-sniffing police dog. Once the traffic violation was dealt with, motorists were free to go, the court held.

“Absent reasonable suspicion, police extension of a traffic stop in order to conduct a dog sniff violates the Constitution’s shield against unreasonable seizures,” wrote Justice Ruth Ginsberg for the court’s 6-3 majority in Rodriguez v. United States.

That case was a necessary antidote for police practices that evolved after the Supreme Court’s decision in Illinois v. Caballesa decade earlier. In that case, the high court held the use of drug dogs during a traffic stop did not violate Fourth Amendment proscriptions against unwarranted searches and seizures because, in the court’s rather involved reasoning, people carrying drugs have no expectation of privacy. Unlike the use of infra-red cameras to peer inside homes, which the court disallowed in an earlier case, the use of drug dogs would only reveal drugs, not other intimate details of one’s life, so that was okay.

The measure, which is intended to protect neighborhoods already saturated with marijuana cultivations and dispensaries, has found grudging acceptance by much of the marijuana industry. But as the council begins a floor debate over amendments, the biggest dispute is whether to stop pending license applications — like those pursued by Bradley and his business partners — before the city sets the caps.
