Children feel violated, parents are furious, and a lawsuit is getting filed after the Worth County Sheriff’s office conducted an illegal search of 900 students — in the name of the war on drugs. The rights-violating intrusive and aggressive pat downs and drug dog searches yielded absolutely nothing. On April 14, when the students of Worth County High School returned from spring break, they arrived at school to find a police state had taken over. The sheriff and his deputies — with no probable cause — detained and illegally searched every single child in the school, all 900 of them.
The “War on Drugs” is largely based on totally FAKED science!

In the annals of wrongful convictions, there is nothing that comes close in size to the epic drug-lab scandal that is entering its dramatic final act in Massachusetts.

Combined with police body cameras, it could redefine the nature of public spaces.
California prosecutors on Tuesday charged two anti-abortion activists who made undercover videos of themselves trying to buy fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood with 15 felonies, saying they invaded the privacy of medical providers by filming without consent.
On St. Patrick’s Day, California’s southernmost metropolis decided to debut a roadside test for those suspected of driving under the influence of cannabis. Several “sobriety checkpoints” were set up throughout the city with the standard invasions of privacy, but this time they added a mouth swab test known as the Drager 5000. If a cop suspects a driver of being high, they request that he or she take the mouth swab test, and perhaps a field sobriety test as well. They’re trying to gather evidence to incriminate you, although the mouth swab test is not mandatory.
There is no evidence that the war on drugs has made the American people safer, more healthy, or more free. Contrarily, prohibition has proven to yield some catastrophic results. Incredible numbers of otherwise law-abiding citizens have had their lives destroyed due to corrupt anti-drug laws which protect the pharmaceutical and private prison industries. Families have been torn apart and patients have been denied medical treatment options such as cannabis oil for seizures due to these failed policies and hysteria surrounding drug use.
