Drug prohibition in action

In this video, a police SWAT team in Columbia, Missouri shoot a suspect's two dogs. He was charged with nonviolent, victimless, misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was also charged with second-degree child endangerment (having drugs in the same house as the child), which raises the question: What endangers a child more, the father using marijuana in the same house as the child, or the police shooting guns in the same house as the child?

Don't (just) blame the police. Blame our draconian drug laws.
