Does Legalized Marijuana Put Washington Drivers At Risk Out Of State? - Prof. Mary Fan quoted - KPLU
Some drivers from Washington and Colorado say they're being targeted by police when they cross into Idaho.
They claim it’s because their license plate shows they live two states that have legal marijuana, but that’s a hard thing to prove.
At least two Washington drivers say they were pulled over in Idaho on suspicion of using marijuana. In both cases, pot was not found and they were let go.
Mary Fan, a law professor at the University of Washington, says it would be really hard to prove that they were profiled because of their license plate.
