Santa Ana Cops Fired For Vile Actions During a 2015 Raid
The three police officers with the Santa Ana Police Department that made headlines last year after surveillance footage from a raid on a medical marijuana dispensary showed them eating pot edibles and making fun of a disabled woman have been cast out into the unemployment line.
Last Thursday, Corporal Anthony Bertanga, a spokesperson for the department, confirmed that Jorge Arroyo, Nicole Lynn Quijas and Brandon Matthew Sontag were no longer with the force. A report from the OC Registersuggests that it is not known if the officers were terminated or whether their departure was of their own volition, while an article from NBC 4 clearly states that the officers were fired.

Evidence Shows How a $2 Roadside Drug Test is Sending Innocent People to Jail
The use and possession of drugs in the United States is problematic, but a bigger problem that people are facing is the $2 roadside drug test kits used by cops that can lead to false convictions.
In 1973, Richard Nixon established the DEA, declaring “an all-out global war on the drug menace,” which led to a pair of California inventors patenting a disposable comparison detector kit. After trying out these drug kits, police departments across the country ordered the field tests because of their simplicity and quick results.
And yes, the small and cheap drug tests seem straightforward—but they come with multiple inefficiencies.
Congress Votes to Make Drug Addiction a Health Issue
While it has been an uphill battle convincing federal lawmakers that drug addiction should be considered a health issue rather than a problem dealt with at the hands of law enforcement, congressional forces have finally approved a measure intended to change the way the U.S. handles people strung out on heroin and prescription painkillers.
On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives put its final approval on a bill called the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), a measure that will allow more low-level drug offenders to be entered into diversion programs rather than get jammed up in the criminal justice system. It also provides for the advancement of a variety of other important programs aimed at reducing opioid abuse and overdose deaths.
