Tennessee’s illegal drug tax was overturned once already. Now, it’s been suspended once more:

Two Knoxville lawyers who convinced a chancellor to strike down the state’s so-called “crack tax” as unconstitutional now have won a rare restraining order against the agency that collects it.

Attorneys James A.H. Bell and Richard Holcomb, representing a Livingston pharmacist accused of peddling painkillers, have won an order barring the state Department of Revenue from disposing of the more than $1 million in property they say the agency seized.

Unlike last time, this ruling seems to affect the whole agency. More:

Bell and Holcomb contended that the tax was no tax at all but punishment for people who were accused but not convicted.
