TO THE EDITOR: I'm no advocate of drug abuse, but "Luther Drug Bust Nets
Teacher, Wife: (news story, July 30) shines the light on the virtual Gestapo
tactics that law enforcement agencies have resorted to in their "war on
drugs." A school teacher and his wife were arrested for cultivation of
marijuana after aerial photos and observation showed plants in their
backyard. I am appalled at the lengths this country will go to apprehend the
"bad guy." Is there no privacy left?
