MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Morristown police officers pulled over a car Friday for an seatbelt violation, and officers say they discovered 31.7 grams marijuana after gaining consent to search the car.

    They had to be watching that house and just got a car from there, if they would just tax it they could make more money and keep innocent/harmless people out of jail.Legalize it

    Sounds like these guys dont know they have a right to refuse a search. "sorry officer, I don't consent to searches." It's not that difficult
