Possibly because a lot of people have drugs or drug residue on them?
I am in no way saying that cops never plant. Not even a little bit. I'm quite sure they do.
But a lot of people do actually have drugs on them or in the car.

That leads to a whole different discussion of "If so many people do it, why is it still illegal?"

"Seriously though, lack of FM is not a safety risk. That's absurd. if they're really concerned, then have them blast out a text message if there is an issue."

Congress, who is actually in charge of passing laws, says, "Hey, wait a minute. Shouldn't we have looked at this first?"

This seems to be one of those "We have to pass it to see what's in it." type of deals.

I am NOT saying the Republicrats are all above board in what they're doing and why ($$$), but it does kind of seem to be in their bailiwick to investigate before things like this are approved or passed.
