Property Seized, But No Culpability Proven

Apparently it is legal for law enforcement officers to seize cash from suspected drug deals and then refuse to return it, even if no charges are brought against the parties.  Apparently, it is also legal for law enforcement to execute a civil seizure of a parent's home if a kid has been involved in drug violations in the house.  The parent's knowledge or culpability is irrelevant.

Aren't there Due Process issues here - substantive and procedural?
