Drug agents descend on 2 counties’ marijuana
It’s not like the Drug War imagery went away with the actual war, vis:
Drug agents launched a two-day assault Thursday on marijuana growers in Jefferson and Tuscaloosa counties, scouting the lucrative green plants by air and then sending in ground troops to pull and destroy.

I’m back from the pharmacy, armed with powerful prescription anti-inflammatories. If I start hallucinating news stories, bear with me.
Rape victim ordered to take drug test
