When it is discovered that a person has illegal drugs in his or her possession in Wisconsin, law enforcement officials may then conduct a more thorough search to determine if any other illegal substances are on the premises.

Reexamining Wisconsin's marijuana laws

On Election Day, two Western states decided to legalize the recreational use of marijuana under certain circumstances. Rather than locking up increasingly significant numbers of our population for relatively minor drug crimes that disproportionately affect youth and minorities, Midwestern states might want to consider doing the same. The issue of marijuana legalization is complicated and politically charged. But it is at least worth serious contemplation.

Cellphones may be small, but they hold a lot of evidence

Privacy is one of the most important rights that we have as citizens. This right works in tandem with a citizen's Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures. So where does the balance lie between the right to privacy and an officer's ability to search and seize a suspect's property? The answer lies in the use of search warrants. These documents grant special access to items that belong to a suspect whether they are a small box or a large home.
