Coloradan claims license plate led to pot search

DENVER — A Colorado man is suing Idaho police, accusing a trooper of presuming he had marijuana simply because his license plates marked him as being from a state where medical pot was legal, The Denver Post reported today.

The Post, quoting an attorney for Darien Roseen, reported that the trooper stopped Roseen at a rest stop just past Idaho’s border with Oregon on Jan. 25, 2013, when medical marijuana was legal in Colorado.

Now, recreational marijuana also can be sold legally in Colorado under the state’s law, raising concern among law enforcement authorities at the federal level and in states in the region where marijuana remains illegal.

Roseen, a retired executive who was on the way home from his daughter’s baby shower in Washington, another state where marijuana has been legalized, said he was detained for hours in Idaho as his truck was searched. According to the suit filed last week in the District of Idaho, no illegal substance was found.
