Florida's Unfolding Drug Evidence Scandal

Florida is investigating a government chemist who “is suspected of taking illegal drugs out of evidence storage and replacing them with over-the-counter medication.”  The state has “identified nearly 2,600 cases spanning 35 counties that [the] chemist processed between 2006 and the present day” and has instituted a “massive evidence review in thousands of drug cases handled by [the] chemist, saying its findings could lead to some criminal cases being quashed and drug dealers set free.”
