CADDO COUNTY, OK — A district attorney from Oklahoma is under fire seizing over $1.3 million in alleged drug money using a private security firm to conduct roadside drug searches along a 21 mile stretch of Interstate 40.

Prosecutors have dismissed all criminal cases stemming from the stops, which were conducted by private security firm Desert Snow beginning in January of this year after being hired by Caddo County District Attorney Jason Hicks to provide training for the county’s drug task force.

BUSTED: Over 70% of All Major US Drug Seizures Are Marijuana Related

July 13th

The study found that of the 5,000 most recent drug busts reported in the news, 70.5% involved marijuana — 140% more than all cocaine (13%), heroin (10%) and methamphetamine (6%) busts combined.  The study did not look at prescription medication abuse or other designer drugs, only the “big four.”

The study found high concentrations of methamphetamine and meth labs in the Midwest, an abundance of heroin in the Northeast, especially in the tri-state area, and a lot of cannabis in California and North Dakota.  Cocaine busts were virtually non-existent in Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Montana and North Dakota, and in a reality check for Breaking Bad fans, New Mexico wasn’t anywhere near the top ten in meth busts.

The study’s author, John Millward, admits that the study represents only a fraction of the total number of seizures made by the DEA, FBI, U.S. Customs Service and U.S. Border Patrol on a yearly basis, but because each of the busts were large eno. . . . . READ MORE
