Anti-drug warrior busted for fake drug sale

This is so typical of drug war hypocrisy. Just as Rushbo demands every drug abuser be thrown in jail, while he's downing illegal doses of Oxycotin himself, here's the founder of the Over the Wall Foundation, an anti-drug abuse organization, conducting a little side business.
Farris, 47, arrived at the coffeehouse in a taxi, police said. An undercover officer gave him an envelope containing $480 in exchange for methamphetamine and ecstasy tablets, which turned out to be fake, authorities said. Farris was arrested at 3:40 p.m.

Farris was arraigned Friday on charges of selling a substance that he alleged was drugs. He is being held on $106,500 bail and could not be reached for comment.
I'm guessing his defense is going to be that he was conducting his own sting by using fake drugs and was surely going to turn the buyer into the police. But of course, the real story is much more likely that he was just scamming the buyer and looking to make a quick buck. Scratch any zealot and you almost always find a self-serving money grubber.

And follow any anti-gay preacher into the mens room and you'll find someone with a wide stance.

There's something really odd though about busting someone for selling drugs when they weren't selling drugs.

It is odd to be busted for pretending to sell drugs. Mark my words, I'm betting I predicted his defense. Hope I see a followup on the story to find out if I'm right.
