Ohio judge among backers of drug-shot option for heroin users

"Just Say No." That was the banner that advocates of the U.S. war on drugs marched behind during the 1980s and 90s.

An Ohio man who owes a hefty sum in overdue child support is under court order to keep his pants zipped so he doesn't father any more children in the next five years. The judge who issued the order calls it a matter of common sense. The Elyria man's attorney calls it an invasion of the man's privacy and reproductive rights.
