Wash. State Rules For Parents In Drugs Case
NOAH ADAMS, host:
And one more note about drugs, this one involves some parents, their 20-something son and the Washington state Supreme Court. Today that court ruled that parents' cars cannot be seized by prosecutors.
Prosecutors had taken the cars after the son was caught using them as mobile pharmacies, selling illicit drugs. The court said the fact that the parents should have known was not enough to justify the seizures.
