No marijuana found? I guess that was just the excuse to search this citizens vehicle?

At this point why even bother mentioning you smelled marijuana? No one believes you and its not like you follow the law anyway.

Just state the truth. He was going to be searched no matter what and his only choice was whether he would be pepper sprayed, tazed and thrown to the ground or cooperative.
