Alcohol and Tobacco products kill far more people than class A drugs, fact.
So we must all be very stupid to allow those dangerous poisons to remain legal, don't you agree?
Plenty of places where drugs have been made legal/authorities look the other way, and the addiction rate has not significantly increased. In some areas, the rate actually went down, same with crime statistics and other associated problems.

Well, first of all she didn't have a flat tire, she ran out of gas.
And the linked articles conveniently fail to disclose why the LEO searched the vehicle.
He may have had probable cause, or he may not have had any. Without this information it is impossible to pass judgement on what happened at the scene. This is why I maintain that the real injustice here wasn't at the scene, but rather at the court / jail.
