MA Drug Lab Shut Down Amid Accusations of Mishandling Samples
A Massachusetts laboratory has been closed amid allegations that tens of thousands of drug samples were mishandled. The Massachusetts governor released figures showing the manager conducted an "unusually high volume" of testing between 2004 and 2011, and now thousands of criminal convictions and pending cases remain in the balance.
Who knows how many other states have this same problem. The drug war has given too much power to too many people, one of the reasons it continues and one of the reasons it must be stopped. A lab technician shouldn’t be able to decide who goes to jail for a non-violent offense (or any offense, for that matter).
Obviously oversight is a key, but that misses the bigger picture. The war on drugs is handing a tremendous amount of power to individuals who abuse that power and were never ready to assume it in the first place.
Besides, the less labs have to focus on non-violent drug offenders, the more they can focus on important results, and the more efficient the oversight will be. Yet another way an end to the drug war will help society and even help the government that props it up.
