Law Enforcement Seizures During Raid on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Washington State (The Seattle Weekly)

Posted by Asset Forfeiture Attorney Steven Kessler.

Steven Kessler, a New York-based attorney and expert on asset forfeiture says that is not unusual.

“It’s now almost become something where you can’t arrest people because you know when they go to trial no one is going to convict them,” Kessler says. “So you say ‘OK, let’s make things miserable for them and take their property and cash and the like.'”

    Law enforcement, judges, DEA, whomever who want to put their spin on this atrocity may do so. However, I contend that this is nothing more than theft! I have had property stolen from me in a civil forfeiture issue and because it’s civil and not criminal, the burden of proof lies on me. While they don’t have to prove my guilt, I have to prove my innocence. This is not done with law- it is done with the color of law. Just to name two countries that use the color of law (appearance of law): China and Russia. Get the picture? This is supposed to be America. Words cannot explain what I have gone through. Only when this happens to you will you get the picture and see its impact of this grand injustice.

    This is ridiculous. Plenty of people are suffering from this injustice and no one is doing or have the power to do anything. If this continues, this country is going down…
