Land, bank accounts, houses, automobiles, and other assets (even "totally clean" substitute assets) are almost always seized by the government in federal drug cases. To get them back, you have the burden of proving that these assets were not acquired as the result of the alleged drug-related activities. This can be done by going to trial and obtaining an acquittal or through exhaustive financial analysis.
