    It appears that another lab has been manipulating drug tests and not following procedures and state law. An audit found errors in 200 of the 2000 Marijuana cases audited, 10% of the cases. How many people where unjustly persecuted over the years?

    So just because you are innocent does not mean you are safe from conviction because of faulty testing. What ever happened to the idea of a reasonable doubt? A jury or judge will almost always go with a scientific result as being the absolute truth, yet it appears that labs across the country have manipulated evidence for convictions. This is just Indiana but Texas had a case just last year.
