Default Brakes grabbing real harddddd!!!!!!

my brakes have been grabbing really hard even when i barely push the brake pedal. it seems they usually bite hard after a rain. is that whats making it do that or ... I put on the ebrake then took it off but the rear driver side brake was locked up. i had to take of the rim and everything and mess with the mechanisms. everythings fine now just cant use the ebrake. i just dont want to be screwing anything up (like the brakes gripping hard is a warning sign)
Thanks alot for the help and reading all this!

It is a recall item from for for using crappy organic brake shoes, switch them to semi metallic rear brake shoes and that should solve the problem.
