-->The Client was driving with his brother and a friend when he took a right hand turn through a green light without using a turn signal. A local police officer on patrol behind the Client’s vehicle activated his lights and sirens and halted the Client’s vehicle. Upon approaching the vehicle, the Officer detected an odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle and asked the Client to exit the vehicle. Once outside, the Client explained to the Officer that the odor was his medicinal marijuana and showed the Officer his medical marijuana card. Inside the Client’s trunk the Officer noticed a glass jar containing marijuana, a digital scale, and a large stack of cash. The Officer then requested consent to search the Client’s vehicle which the Client provided. Upon searching the vehicle, the Officer discovered over seven ounces of marijuana, well above the two and one-half ounce limit provided by Rhode Island’s Medical Marijuana laws. Based on what the Officer discovered, the Client was charged with possession with intent to deliver marijuana and driving in possession of a controlled substance.RESULTS: ALL CHARGES DISMISSED after prevailing on the Client's Motion to Suppress Evidence on November 18th, 2011
