Double standard?

Drive a bus, do not drink alcohol and tell your employer what drugs you are taking. Have a driving accident, the state police, the local school board and the county DA all take a stand against you. But quoting from a news story, “A 51-year-old former Canton-Potsdam Hospital psychiatrist accused of dealing in illegal narcotic activities now faces reduced charges.” Is this justice? A bus driver who does not drink, explained his medical conditions to his employer and has an absolutely perfect driving record, gets charged with DUI and drug convictions. Does money talk for innocents? My bet is on the bus driver.
