How to Become a Bounty Hunter



How Former DEA Agents Turned From Drug Fighters to Pot Proponents

Paul Schmidt spent most of his career hunting down drug dealers.

Now the retired DEA agent – the former top drug enforcer in Oregon – is holding seminars to advise medical marijuana dispensaries on the laws, CNBC reports.

DEA Agent Patrick Moen recently gave up his badge to work for a venture-based capital firm focused on the pot industry.

“Fifteen years in law enforcement, I came to realize that targeting marijuana offenders was not a good use of resources,” Moen said. “And so, I believe that prohibition needs to end. I believe the end of it is inevitable.”

DEA agents like Moen and Schmidt are in demand because of their expertise on marijuana, which is rapidly becoming legal in states for medicinal and recreational purposes.
