How to Become a Bounty Hunter



All 9 Former DEA Administrators Join Forces to Oppose Legalization of Pot in Colorado

By Steve Neavling

All nine of the DEA’s former administrators signed an amicus brief that was filed Thursday in support of a Supreme Court petition challenging Colorado’s recreational marijuana laws, Politico reports.

The directors are siding with Oklahoma and Nebraska’s Supreme Court petition that challenges legalization.

The law in Colorado “gravely menace[s]…[t]he health, comfort and prosperity of the people” of neighboring states,” the former administrators write in their brief.

“The federal government made the choice in 1970 that a uniform, comprehensive, and consistent national approach to controlled substances was necessary,” the brief continues. “Principles of federalism, properly understood, therefore support the plaintiff States’ suit against Colorado.”

President Obama’s administration has urged federal law enforcement to respect state marijuana laws.
