Procedural error with warrant leads to dismissal of drug charges

A Missouri professor is taking a deep breath of relief -- and potentially something else -- after his drug case was dismissed because of a procedural error. The man, a professor at Northwest Missouri State, had reportedly been targeted by law enforcement officials after he posted a threatening comment on a social media site. Officers were able to obtain a warrant to search the man's home, where they only found a pellet gun; however, they also found a marijuana-growing operation during that search. The man was taken into custody and hit with a series of drug charges after officers found the illegal plants at his home.
