How to Become a Bounty Hunter



DEA Seizes Far Fewer Marijuana Plants Under Obama Administration

By Steve Neavling

The DEA continues to seize and destroy less marijuana under the Obama administration, the Washington Post reports.

Last year the DEA destroyed 4.3 million marijuana plants, compared to 10.4 million in 2009.

The “cannabis eradication program” provides money to local and state law enforcement agencies to destroy marijuana plants. But those funds have been drying up.

The Post wrote:

Marijuana eradication teams, who criss-cross the countryside in helicopters looking for grow sites, occasionally become overzealous in carrying out their missions. The Georgia Governor’s Task Force for Drug Suppression earned notoriety last year when they raided a retiree’s garden after misidentifying okra as marijuana. Last month, a member of DEA’s marijuana eradication team in Utah warned lawmakers there that a medical marijuana bill would lead inevitably to stoned rabbits in the state’s forests.
