DEA Blames Media for Spreading Misinformation about Marijuana

The DEA is taking a page from Donald Trump’s playbook – blame the media.

The DEA complained in its annual survey that “media attention” to marijuana is making it difficult to enforce federal laws that make pot illegal, the Washington Post reports. 

It also appears to be the media’s fault for spreading inaccurate information about the dangers of marijuana and the drug’s legality.

The report reads:

Many states have passed laws allowing the cultivation, possession, and use of marijuana within their respective states. Due to these varying state laws, as well as an abundance of media attention surrounding claims of possible medical benefits, the general public has been introduced to contradictory and often inaccurate information regarding the legality and benefits of marijuana use. This has made enforcement and prosecution for marijuana-related offenses more difficult, especially in states that have approved marijuana legalization.

TAKE BACK THE D.E.A.!!!

The D.E.A. and F.D.A. both stand in defiance of Congress and also the Senate as well as the majority of citizens. Because of the misuse and abuse of responsibility and credibility as well as incompetence and refusal to reform, the enforcement power of the D.E.A. should be removed and placed back into the hands of the state. A semi-secret elite police force within what is already a police state is way over the top. America does not need this throwback to the cold war era. These Federal offices have become a haven of renegade Authoritarian despots and tyrants commandeering and miss-directing hundreds of millions even billions into their drug war against American citizens and likewise funding state police regimes both within the U.S. and worldwide.It is these federal agency’s that have created the drug problem solely to commandeer funding and as their power base. Well in excess of sixty percent of F.D.A. employees are lured into going to work for the pharmaceutical industry. The D.E.A. is no more than an arm of the pharmaceutical industry. These renegade authoritarians as well as the pro drug war Authoritarians in the F.B.I. need to be controlled or removed
