Of course, the local cops can do the same thing. The can confiscate your cash if you're carrying a lot of it as suspected drug dealer and it's almost impossible to get the back.

I am NOT saying that this is only because of this administration, so don't even go in that direction. I believe it's been going on for a long time and spans other administrations. I also believe enough is enough......
