It is an awful shame as I once knew Charles Goforth and can't believe this happened. If I am not mistaken , When I knew him in the 80's that his daddy was a preacher but I could be mistaken.

This is ridicules MO has been hampered by out of touch lawmakers being bested by drug makers. From a technical standpoint the synthetic drugs have been illegal since LSD was invented. But legislators have not been smart enough to write laws with out loopholes. Pryor synthetic laws attempted to "name" illegal substances and drug makers only had to change the name. Finally the bath salts and fertilizers simply had to add the disclaimer "not for human consumption" and again they skated the law. This last bill set on Nixons desk for almost a year, approved by both the senate and the house it was intended to close the loophole that other bills missed. But Nixon played politics with the bill and as a result many people suffered.
The seizing of the drugs was not an illegal seizure from the standpoint of commonsense law. The drugs were illegal and a danger. They were being sold as a DRUG which made the possession illegal. A technicality only gave an arguable precedence to call the seizure unjust. Our spineless county officials should have let Oliver and Hefner fight this one out in court, maybe we could have set a precedence that the law is not to protect criminals through loopholes and misinterpretation, But it is to protect the people from the criminals and corruption. Worse case scenario we loose a little man hours and insurance still has to pick up the tab, but at least it would have sent the message that we are not going to turn our head on injustice.
Siffords remarks only shows the long standing contempt for anyone who tries to upset the shadow politics that governs our area of southeast MO.
