Vehicle search prompted by marijuana smell ruled illegal by Pa. judge

Vehicle search prompted by marijuana smell ruled illegal by Pa. judge An eastern Pennsylvania judge has ruled that state police troopers who said they smelled marijuana in a car weren't allowed to search it once they were shown a passenger's medical marijuana card. A Lehigh County judge tossed out evidence cited in support of drug and firearms counts stemming from the Nov. 7 search in Allentown, The (Allentown) Morning Call reported . "The smell of marijuana is no longer per se indicative of a crime," Judge Maria Dantos wrote in her opinion filed Friday. Authorities said Timothy Barr, 27, was a passenger in the car driven by his wife that was stopped by state troopers on a traffic violation.

The jalapeño is probably the easiest to find and the most often used at local Mexican restaurants. It is pronounced: hah-lah-pain-yo. Canned jalapeños may be milder than fresh because they are usually peeled and the seeds removed. Pickled jalapeños are always hot.

There, the jalapeño is king, and its spiciness is far more than the traditional bell and red peppers you find right next to them. The jalapeño is pretty much the perfect amount of heat for those that like a little kick, but don’t want to challenge their taste buds to a duel.
