DEA Chief evades simple questions

June 21, 2012 | By | Reply More

WTF . . . the head of the DEA can’t say whether meth, crack cocaine or heroin are “worse than marijuana.” And she looks not quite right (probably for reasons other than marijuana) as she struggles with this really basic line of questions. Oh, I get it. She’s not actually saying what she thinks. She’s being political, meaning dishonest. She is not going to help American exorcise its long-running and horribly destructive drug war demon.


Check out the low-wattage amoral head of the DEA. I would have enjoyed seeing Steve Cohen grill her for another hour. And then we should fire her. And then the DEA should publicly apologize for all of the pain they are causing users of medical marijuana.
