No, they don’t have the right, but they have the full power of federal law enforcement behind them, so they can do what they want.
Why wouldn’t they need a warrant to come on private property and put the camera up in the first place?
The better question is...can you shoot it?
I think so.
Sending in the drones too expensive or risky?
dope or no dope, Nice to know your gubamint is keeping a close eye on ya, huh?
this is a nation lost to a rudderless agenda that keeps bashing the ship of state on the rocks of time and ‘justice’ and then pretending no harm or foul has occurred.
Will you please tell me which of the specific powers delegated by the Founding States to Congress in Section 8 of Article I gave Congress the power to establish the DEA in the first place?

If conservatism-at-large had any concept of what kind of surveillance state monster their support for the War on Drugs will later unleash upon them, the plug would get pulled tomorrow. A few people ODing in alleyways would be vastly preferable to what’s coming next.
Can the DEA Hide a Surveillance Camera on Your Land?>>>>>>>>>>>>
NO. They have to have a court order absent written consent by the owner.
Agreed. Anything I find on my rural property I’ll do whatever I want with it.
All they needed was a warrant from a federal judge, which isn’t hard to get. They couldn’t be bothered, I guess.
Doesn't say anything about entire acreages.
Be interesting to see how SCOTUS rules.
“Curtilage is a term of legal art referring to the area of a property immediately surrounding a house or dwelling. Past Supreme Court jurisprudence, particularly US v. Oliver , had held under the “open fields” doctrine that areas outside the curtilage are not subject to the same Fourth Amendment protection as a home itself. “An individual may not legitimately demand privacy for activities conducted out of doors in fields, except in the area immediately surrounding the home ,” the court held in Oliver. “
I’m not a lawyer but I would think this would only apply to something they could see from adjoining public property or from a neighbor who permits them access. To be able to come on your private property without your permission is wrong any way you look at it.
One of the judges Ted Kennedy DIDN’T bother to block, I see.
Does the No Trespassing posting close the “open fields”?
I’d say yes, but who knows what the Nine Robed Lawyers will do.
And people wonder why I want to decriminalize all drugs.
Well, “effects” could mean a lot of stuff.
Doesn’t say anything about entire acreages.
Imagine your house is on one of those postage stamp lots and you come home from work one day to find a video camera attached to a tree in your tiny back yard pointed down at your garden to see what you are growing.
Does that sound legit?
That’s what happened here. The yard was just bigger. And I don’t believe the constitution has any limit on the size of your property.
