    Massachusetts has the worst civil asset forfeiture program out of all 50 states. The state with the facade of championing consumer protections allows for forfeiture of property without a conviction, 100% of assets go to law enforcement, and virtually no third party protection for innocent property owners. The state is the only in the nation to receive an F grade from the Institute of justice. Edit: North Dakota received an F as well. What if anything is the CMRLA doing to address this?
