    Ex-CIA Employees Who Garden Indoors Claim Home Was Illegally Searched

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. Two former CIA employees whose Kansas home was fruitlessly searched for marijuana during a two-state drug sweep claim they were illegally targeted, possibly because they had bought indoor growing supplies to raise vegetables.
    A drug sniffing dog was brought in to help, but deputies ultimately left after providing a receipt stating, "No items taken."

    I wonder what the "rest of the story" is on this.

    I read this the other day. Supposedly the intel was they were shopping for certain items used in the inside growing of marijuana. I hope this wasn't all there was to the intel.

    Might just be that some still bright-eyed journalist was surprised to find the Fourth Amendment is as dead for former CIA as everyone else. Or might be some jaded old ink stained wretch who knows the cold war spy agencies still have headline SEO cachet.

    Would you have read it if it didn't have CIA in the title? Nah, you wouldn't have had the opportunity: it would have died on the 3rd page of the Kansas City Scribbler. Just like everyone else in their situation, including farmers who order suspicious amounts of nitrogen based fertilizer.

    The rest of the story is most of us aren't interesting enough to get a splashy headline when the system breaks against us. Good for them. And only them. Though how many ex-CIA who moved to Kansas to garden in private are looking for attention? Consider what they just gave up in their outrage.

    I've done knock and talk's on info such as this. There was usually not enough info for a SW
