Commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. Benjamin Cruz - While the transformation of adult marijuana possession from a misdemeanor to a noncriminal civil infraction limits warrantless police intrusions into otherwise lawful conduct based on merely the odor of marijuana, as a matter of the state constitution's protection against unreasonable search and seizure, thereby requiring the trial court's suppression order in this case; are those limits reinforced by state common law (even as narrowly expanded by G.L.c.94C, sec. 41), and by constitutional protections from unreasonable government interference with individual autonomy and cognitive sovereignty.
