16. Will Foster would likely disagree with your thesis


"In 1995, Will Foster was a 36-year old father of two when Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officers appeared at his door with a "John Doe" warrant to search for methamphetamine on the basis of a tip from a confidential informant. They found no amphetamines, even after tearing apart his five-year-old daughter's teddy bear. But behind a locked steel door in his basement they found a 25-square-foot marijuana garden plants Foster grew to treat the chronic pain of acute rheumatoid arthritis."

Sentenced to 93 years in prison.
Sentence reduced to 20 and Foster served 4 years and 4 months in a state penitentiary.

Mr. Foster's 4th and 6th Amendment rights were thrown in the garbage.
More serious than expensive gasoline, imo.
