What Is Wrong with This Headline?

This one: “Marshall Henderson Caught with cocaine, marijuana.” I never heard of Marshall Henderson, a college basketball player, until I read this story. This is a ridiculous headline because we have ridiculous drug laws. Imagine a headline that said “Marshall Henderson Caught with a Rose” or “Marshall Henderson Caught with an Apple.” Ridiculous, right? That this guy was caught with drugs should be seen as just as ridiculous. Truly, the war on drugs is a war on freedom.
