In Illinois v. Caballes, 533 U.S. 27 (2005), a 7-2 U.S. Supreme Court upheld the use of drug-sniffing dogs without probable cause and without a warrant to smell for drugs around random vehicles. The rationale was that the drugs could only detect unlawful activity, and thus there was no violation of the Fourth Amendment.
