Drug cops are used as revenue agents
This is in part why prohibition has such favorable support from police departments and organizations.
It’s called “Civil Asset Forfeiture”, and cops don’t need a conviction to seize property from citizens.
This is VERY disturbing! They killed Donald Scott, in order to try to steal his land, and the results of the investigation did not find a single speck of drugs or contraband.
The investigation in the end showed that the National Parks Service, was trying to do land acquisition in that area to benefit public lands. So just like in many cases, they attempted to accuse an innocent person of crimes in order to steal their property. They do this to cannabis shops all over the country on a regular basis, even though the cannabis shops are completely legal.
