Man stopped for traffic violation faces marijuana drug charges

In California and other jurisdictions, traffic stops that lead to drug arrests must be scrutinized thoroughly for signs of overreaching and unconstitutional police procedures. So-called traffic stops are occasionally a subterfuge intended to mask a search actually based on suspicion and racial profiling. An officer may conveniently characterize a stop as a traffic violation, then transform it into a search and an arrest on drug charges. This is not standard police practice, but counsel must investigate the potential for improper procedure to protect the suspect's rights.
