    New York Daily News: Bronx teacher’s aide says NYPD dragged her to jail half-naked in drug raid: Woman and relatives suing city for $1 million each in Bronx court

    Three other people in the apartment were also arrested. The article does not indicate what the disposition of their charges was.

    I hope these ladies win their case.

    Note that the ladies lost their jobs merely because they were arrested. This strikes me as very wrong.

    While I'm not in favor of any drug abuse, including the abuse of prescription medications, I am in favor of legalizing recreational drugs. I can't help but notice that drug enforcement is the leading cause of police/swat home invasions and excessive force cases.

    I'd like to see drug production regulated for safety and drug sales taxed. Who says stupidity can't be taxed? At the very least we can tax stupid behaviors, reducing the tax burden on the sensible majority.
