To a certain extent that is true. There are also ways for police to cover their tracks beyond that. But creating a track record can help to identify and nail a bad apple - if a department gets a bunch of reports of this ploy, they are going to put a stop to it, if only because those reports are discoverable and will undermine the credibility of the officer when he has to testify. Also, if there is some form of corroboration of a total lack of MJ smell at that time, it is no longer a 1-on-1 swearing contest. Of course, a lot is fact dependent.
