MA high court rules that marijuana odor cannot provide reasonable suspicion of a crime

Findlaw offers the details here.  The operative issue is whether the odor of marijuana is evidence of a crime.  Since possession of less than an ounce is a civil in MA now, its odor cannot be evidence of crime.  For those keeping score, this has been the law in Oregon for some time.
