Pulled over for having too much money in the dash and some drugs.

Hmm... I guess police officers have superhuman strengths now, they got x-ray vision it looks like! There has to be a reason, right? So what, he had some cash & a gram of pot in his car! No one trusts banks/government anymore, so he was a bank on wheels...

I would rather see some child molester get picked up rather then this, police priorities are screwed up IMO!

The officers probably had a drug sniffing dog with them, good for them. If the state gets to keep illicit drug money that should help our economy.

The government pockets the money in cases like this. I am suprised the cop didn't take half the money and say, "Have a nice day".
