"A majority of US currency has drug residue and will register positive by K9 units. Currency is not illegal. It is not illegal to transport any amount of currency within the United States. There is some precedent for challenging currency seizures, arising from K9 units, but courts generally allow it. Currency discovered in a search, premised on a positive drug sniff, in the absence of contraband, should be excluded from police seizure power." (11/16/11)
