Issues with adding tags -- 

-- can we not use more than ten tags?  I know I used to be able to add 12 or 14. 
-- some tags not allowed?  I tried multiple times to add ' US Marshall Service'  as the first tag. Then later tried to add ' drug use'. Neither of these will 'save'.

I've found certain words or letter combinations won't go through. I played with your tag, and found  I could add "Marshall Service"  (British spelling) "Marshal Service" (American spelling) and "United States Marshal Service" / "United States Marshall Service", if that helps.

"Drug abuse" works, but not "Drug use".

Play with your wording a bit, and you can often find something that will work. There's no limit to how many tags you can add.
