Alright this is what happened, It's 12:30 and i go to my car to look for some matches to light up a joint that i have. I go out to my porch, smoke it, go inside to play video games. As i'm playing call of duty, I hear my doorknob turn as if someone is trying to get in. I stop and think...who the hell would do that? So i check the peekhole and i see a ****ing cop and a huge dog going down the stairs away from my apartment. I freak out head to my room and dump all my weed.

I do not plan on bringing weed into my house anymore....as i'm writing this i see the cop car passing by my house....i'm not scared cause i know they now have nothing on me....but i live with my mom and if she found out that this is happening she would freak out and possibly kick me out...

my question to the pit is, is what the cop did legal?

tl;dr-cop tried opening my door with drug dog then left, i dumped my weed, i see him passing by my house, i think he might try it again...

I don't know what you mean by him trying to "open the door with a drug dug," but if a drug dog detects something that gives a cop probable cause so he can search your home/car/whatever the dog detected drugs in without a warrant.

He was just a male stripper with a dog thats into bestiality.

They were looking for the party.

No. Its not legal to enter at all unless they have a search warrant/you answer the door. Also they must identify themselves as a police officer, hence the phrase "Police department! open up!" or "this is the police, come out with your hands up!".

what a ****ing dick. our tax dollars at work i suppose. busting people for the giggles and playing xbox again. damn those menaces to society, writing poems and watching LOTR marathons.

He's right. I ordered you a stripper, cus I know its your birthday within the next year.

Thanks for shoving the present back in my face, and not opening the door

he was at your door because he wanted some weed, his dog could detect it.

Do drug dogs finding of a drug count as "Probably cause" that you committed a crime? Not for a full out search without your consent (You can consent to them searching and no more warrant needed) but I think they cant just outright search the house with just a dog...

they need a warrant or your permission to search your house, even if you answer the door you don't have to let them in.

yeah if a drug dog finds something and the cops can ID it then it's probable cause for search/arrest.

Pretty sure it does. It works the same if you're pulled over. An officer can call a K-9 unit over, if they detect something that gives them the right to search your car.

How on earth do you use a dog to open a door? They don't even have any corners to pry it open with, they're a highly inefficient door opening mechanism.

Yea i would've talked to him and told him he couldn't come in but he didn't even knock...he literally just tried opening my front door...what did he think was gonna happen? he would've opened my door and saw me playing video games and i would've freaked out cause i don't know who the **** was trying to open my front door...

Did the cop try and open the door or did the dog smell the weed and go crazy jumping on the door? Cops need a search warrant to come in but all it takes is a call to the judge telling him the dog smells something.

He doesn't have the right to barge into your house for no reason. However, if he saw you smoking the joint then he has reasonable cause. (Sorta stating the obvious.)

I think that when you're doing something illegal, especially when the fucking dog smells it, cops can come in. Right?

To answer the question, yes it was an overenthusiastic cop trying to overstep his authority.

If you're in your car smoking weed, then they have the right to pull you over, search you etc. But if you're on private property, they have to either get the permission of the homeowner to enter, or get a warrant to search the premises.
#24
I've never heard of using a drug sniffing dog to get probable cause to search a house (I have heard it for cars, of course). I have seen them try to get you to open your door so they can look in from outside for paraphernalia or any other probable cause.

I'm a law student and I agree. They sometimes do this, walk around shady neighborhoods with dogs.

Hahaha I love this thread. Basically OP gets butthurt because he BROKE THE LAW and then a cop decided to investigate, as if the cop was being unreasonable.

I support the legalisation of weed personally, but as long as your country bases its Marijuana laws on the movie Reefer Madness you have to be subtle. My mates and I have been smoking that stuff for 3 years to different degrees. If you know your area you know where you can go and smoke. Or otherwise smoke indoors.

I know people who get paranoid even that they will be caught indoors though...

Remind Rodney King of that one, once he gets out of prison.


Rodney King was off his face and had tried to attack the officers, that was before the video started rolling.

Still that sparked the LA riots, which was a fine example of law abiding citizens.

Seems like you got a nosey neighbour to me.

When I smoke at home I sit out on the windowsill like spiderman and smoke. I go topless aswell so my clothes don't absorb the smell. One time I was just sitting out their smoking a joint and there was my neighbour just staring at me topless on my windowsill.

Needless to say I shat my pants and scrabbled back inside as quickly as possible.
