DEA To Collect Autopsy DATA

The Drug Enforcement Administration, frustrated that it has not been able to detect some hot spots for drug abuse more quickly, is testing a computer database that will allow federal agents to closely monitor death reports from local medical examiners and toxicologists.

The idea behind the database is to allow agents to identify areas that should be targeted for investigations to root out drug dealers, smugglers and pill mills that have fueled drug abuse in communities.

What that really means is that they are searching for something to do for their future job security. What if I don't want my autopsy report given to the DEA? When did we cross the point of no return in this country?
