"If you are looking at pictures or news stories of the federal raids on Oaksterdam University today and are wondering why the US Marshals are there, it's because it is their job to catalog and inventory everything for seizure and auction so that the Department of Justice can make a handsome profit."
"California's marijuana industry is under attack! The federal government is using forfeiture to threaten everyone from cultivators to banks to newspapers that sell marijuana related ads.Your support of Americans for Forfeiture Reform will help us support legislative reform and help forfeiture victims..." via FundRazr
Forfeiture Reform is not just about protecting homes from being illegally swept out from underneath prospective homeowners by banks.. It's about your right to Due Process.
Big Government is out there overstepping boundaries, knocking down doors, taking whatever they wish from your driveway, apartment, store front, dispensary, even shipyard as "evidence" and selling it when you're not looking at Auctions. Forfeiture has gotten so out of control it's challenging our Constitution..
"Hi, I'm Eapen Thampy, founder and executive director of AFR. In 2010, I worked on asset forfeiture reform in California, and we have a good chance of advancing this issue in 2012. Your support is essential to our work."
