Florida Chemist Imperils Prescription Drug Convictions
A chemist with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in Pensacola who conducted drug tests in 2,600 cases in 35 counties around the state has been relieved of duty after it was determined some of the drug samples in his cases were tampered with. The chemist allegedly swapped out some of the prescription pills with over the counter pills. Hundreds of drug convictions are now imperiled.
Head-scratching comment from Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi:
"This situation simply underlines the extent of the problem our country faces with prescription drug abuse."
Really? A police chemist falsifies evidence and the blame lies not with him but with those using the medication?
