Here’s a new way to fight drug dealers.
It might be scary and it certainly will require sensible cooperation from prosecutors and the bench, especially from the robots and bounty hunters at the federal level.
According to this story from the BBC,
Sandra Bergen, 23, suffered a heart attack and spent 11 days in a coma after taking crystal methamphetamine.
She said in her court claim that the dealer “knew the drug was highly addictive” and that his dealing was not only “for the purpose of making money but was also for the purpose of intentionally inflicting physical and mental suffering” on her.
“I sued him for negligence… for selling me drugs and getting me hooked when I was vulnerable.”
It seems the Canadian court has granted her $50,000 in compensation, and she’s awaiting a date to determine damages.
