Police raid innocent family because of indoor garden

According to this article the Adlynn & Robert Harte, who were both CIA employees in the past and appear to be pretty familiar with the law, were targeted for having purchased merchandise from a hydroponics store. As the couple’s lawsuit states:

“With little or no other evidence of any illegal activity, law enforcement officers make the assumption that shoppers at the store are potential marijuana growers, even though the stores are most commonly frequented by backyard gardeners who grow organically or start seedlings indoors.”

They were and are law abiding citizens who had nothing more than a six legal plants in their basement. They were raided, at gunpoint, due to shoddy police-work and without probable cause. They are filing a federal civil rights lawsuit in response. Good luck to them. They should win.
