Kodak Black was arrested in Florida last night and charged with drug trafficking, a crime that carries up to 20 years in prison, Media Take Out has confirmed.
According to a local reporter, Kodak Black was pulled over for an expired label and illegal window tints. Police claim they smelled weed when he opened the door to the bulletproof SUV he was driving, so they began searching.
They found more than 30 oxtycodone pills without a prescription and $50,000 in cash.
But Kodak could escape jail time because of a loophole in Florida law.
Media Take Out investigated, and following the legalization of hemp in 2019, Miami and Florida law enforcement and the Attorney’s Office instituted an “Odor Plus” standard. Under the new standard, cops can’t search a car just for smelling marijuana. Officers must use a different indicator of illegal activity to overcome the probable cause standard for searching a vehicle.
Defense attorneys across Florida have been arrested over the smell of marijuana, which was dropped for lack of probable cause under the Fourth Amendment. In 2020, the Twentieth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida ruled that the smell of marijuana alone cannot be the sole basis for a search for probable cause.
