Abuse of federal law allowed the government to steal this college student's life savings

Charles Clarke, after a long trip to visit relatives in Cincinnati between late 2013 and early 2014, was preparing to board a flight back to his home in Orlando when he was approached by local law enforcement working with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). They claimed a ticket agent said his checked bag smelled like marijuana and began asking him about his travel plans because he had purchased a one-way ticket. They also asked whether he was carrying any cash.
