Police Training Drug Sniffing Dogs to Ignore Marijuana

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington State Patrol and other police agencies in the state are now training drug-sniffing dogs to ignore marijuana.

The Prosecuting Attorneys' Association also says an alert from drug-sniffing dogs is no longer enough evidence for a search warrant.
