Some can rightfully argue that it is a security risk if you can use Google now with a lockscreen. On Liquid smooth, I can use Now on my lock screen, but I can't go beyond the results without entering my pin.

This might help...

(not sure if this will work on your Galaxy..)

You could enable "Ok Google" voice detection from anywhere (including lock screen)

Go to Google Now,
tap the top left icon, or drag finger from left screen edge
>settings>voice>"Ok Google" Detection> Toggle "From any screen" and "When Locked"
