A Texas DPS crime lab technician found himself on the other side of the law.

Jesus Hinojosa, 30, was in court Friday morning.

Prosecutors say he admitted to smuggling at least 23 kilos of cocaine out of the lab in his back pack over the past several years.

Hinojosa worked as an evidence technician, and has been with the department for 5 years.

He and two others have been charged with delivery of a controlled substance.

How long are until we wise up? Prohibition has never worked. It just causes crime and violence. We’re building 900 new prison beds and hiring 150 more correction officers every two weeks. We arrest someone on a drug charge every 17 seconds. We jail more people than any nation. We spend $69 billion a year on the drug war. In 1914 when all drugs were legal 1.3% of our population was addicted to drugs, today 1.3% of our population is STILL addicted to drugs. Over 100,000 people have been killed because of the drug war. The only way to control drugs is to regulate them and end the profits available to criminals just like ending alcohol prohibition did. There‚Äôs only been one drug success story in history, tobacco, hands down the most deadly and one of the most addictive drugs. Almost half the users quit because of REGULATION, ACCURATE INFORMATION AND MEDICAL TREATMENT. No one went to jail and no one got killed. JOIN EMAIL LIST – WATCH VIDEOS:
