Drug-sniffing dogs retrained to ignore marijuana

You can't explain "gray area" to a dog, which is causing a few problems in Washington state.

Police are now trying to re-train drug-sniffing dogs to ignore marijuana, now that the state has legalized personal use.

Most of those dogs still alert police to what is now a legal drug.

That could result in an illegal search.

Prosecutors in Washington warn police they may now need more than a K-9's alert for a search warrant.

That's why the Seattle Police Department is among the many no longer training drug-sniffing dogs to detect marijuana.

Police are also trying to re-train the dogs by desensitizing them to pot.
