Weird, I do not remember writing this O.P. - I just logged back onto A.T.S. it seems like a magically condensed and more coherent version of the other, more involved thread I wrote. I'll go with it though.

Has your browser been open between OP'S? Multiple tabs?
Maybe you started this one, then ended up starting another one on this topic which you posted but your original (now this OP) was still sitting there and was then posted by you accidentally or inadvertently?
Jeez...now I have deja vu AND a headache...
Let us know if you figure it out.
The entire we are going to search because we smelled something is a load of garbage, just intimidation tactics.
edit: Oh, you did have some....LOL
Would have stepped outside, closed the door and asked to see the warrant.edit on 20-10-2013 by MidnightTide because: (no reason given)
If you tried that here in the UK you would be arrested for " suspicion of illegal drugs " the cops here only needs a suspicion then they can arrest you and search your property without a warrant.
Police can only enter premises without a warrant if a serious or dangerous incident has taken place.
Situations in which the police can enter premises without a warrant include when they want to:
deal with a breach of the peace or prevent it
enforce an arrest warrant
arrest a person in connection with certain offences
recapture someone who has escaped from custody
save life or prevent serious damage to property.
Apart from when they are preventing serious injury to life or property, the police must have reasonable grounds for believing that the person they are looking for is on the premises.
If the police do arrest you, they can also enter and search any premises where you were during or immediately before the arrest. They can search only for evidence relating to the offence for which you have been arrested or to some other offence which is connected with or similar to that offence, and they must have reasonable grounds for believing there is evidence there. They can also search any premises occupied by someone who is under arrest for certain serious offences. Again, the police officer who carries out the search must have reasonable grounds for suspecting that there is evidence on the premises relating to the offence or a similar offence.
