Drug War Victim

A sad story in yesterday's Chicago Tribune about a 24-year-old man
in Texas who choked to death. He was fixing a flat tire early on
Wednesday morning when police stopped to offer him assistance.
The man apparently feared being caught with marijuana; it was a
plastic bag containing pot that choked him to death. In Texas,
possession of less than two ounces of marijuana can be punished
by 180 days in jail and a $2000 fine, according to the NORML
