Quote from John Kaplan 

"Drug offenses ... may be regarded as the prototypes of non-victim
crimes today. The private nature of the sale and use of these drugs has
led the police to resort to methods of detection and surveillance that
intrude upon our privacy, including illegal search, eavesdropping, and

Indeed, the successful prosecution of such cases often requires police
infringement of the constitutional protections that safeguard the
privacy of individuals."
