Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Ober is proof positive that America's
drug crusade has gone completely insane. When a district attorney
portrays Mark O'Hara's prescription drug use as "drug trafficking,"
can there be any doubt that madness has taken over?

The true measure of the depravity of Mark O'Hara's prison sentence for
"drug trafficking" comes from the fact that no sales were involved in
his "crime."

Mark Ober ran for office based on his character and ethics, which have
been revealed as highly flawed by his attempt twist the law to put an
innocent man in prison. Ober's promises to restore public confidence
in the Hillsborough State Attorney's Office were obviously empty words.
