NJ Supreme Court Approves Warrantless Drug Test

New Jersey’s highest court has ruled that police acted correctly in arresting a man without getting a search a warrant after he answered his door smoking a marijuana cigarette.

Rashad Walker had argued he was subjected to unlawful search and seizure in 2008 after four undercover Newark police officers pushed into his apartment.

The state Supreme Court’s 6-0 ruling reverses an appellate decision that said a warrant was required.

Court records show police seized marijuana, cocaine and heroin from inside Walker’s apartment.

The judges ruled the police met the requirements for warrantless entry when Walker tried to flee after being caught with the drugs.
