In the State of Indiana, is it legal for the police to stop you from entering your house while they are waiting to obtain a search warrant? Can you point me to any statutes or literature that addresses this issue?

I was pulled over for speeding and the state trooper claimed he smelled marijuana and was going to call out the K9 unit. Ultimately nothing happened, but I have questions about the situation and procedures. [more inside]

This video clip from the TLC leaves me wondering what should be done. I know to never allow the police to search anything and to not answer questions. But what if the request is not a question but a demand rationalized by the officer as a safety issue. Bonus question: does the door being opened count as consent to search? YANML YANAL TINLA apply [more inside]

Insipred by this recent question and a quick search of older posts I was wondering what are my rights when stopped by the police in Ontario:
i) on foot
ii) in a car
iii) at my door/on my property?
