My son was arrested for coming to his door stoned. The policemen alledgedly complained about a car obstrucking the ally. The cop knocked, my son answered. the cop says looked like the plow make a present for you (blocked) them in. Cop noticed my son was stoned and asked the search the place. Sam had 3 plants, one which was somewhat mature and another two that were about an inch high (starter plants). He had pipes, a scale. (for weighing his purchases) and $100 in his desk drawer from just selling his sub-woofer speaker
to his room-mate. The cops took all the paraphenalia and the money as well as the plants.
My son was charged with 4 counts, 2 misdemeanors
and 2 felonies for selling drugs and manufacturing. Sam is 18 and has never sold a gram in his life. He had the scale to measure his purchases. They took his cellphone and that will show he has not been selling drugs. Meanwhile a cop on the force heard about the arrest and proceeded to tell on of my
son's classmates what went on. It seems like the word arround town regarding my son and his appartment roommate is being shared around town through Jordan and the policeman.
I'm a pharmacist and I'm sworn to uphold HIPPA laws regarding patients rights and respons-
bilities. It would be unethical to disclose medical information about people becuase of my
role as provider. Doen't a policeman have a similar type responsibility rather than freely blatblather what may or may not be the truth about a case before any litigation has been
done. I think this is horribly wrong amd am wondering what I should do. Thanks in advance for your response.
