The DEA has a new leader that illustrates the relation to moms, babies, kids, food labelers, and sick people, people who could become patients, from our tax supported government.
As you read this story or watch the news about lately, it’s easy to just cop a fat sac, close the blinds, and don the headphones to get away. If like me and you have to deal with it daily, it can become depressing but please watch the video at the end of this report. It shows you the force that is with us. Like the Jedi, this force isn’t for stoners, it isn’t for medical marijuana patients in general. This force is reserved for the ones who believe in One Love, like we all here do.
The acting agency chief made the comments to reporters earlier this month.
“What really bothers me is the notion that marijuana is also medicinal — because it’s not,” Rosenberg said. “We can have an intellectually honest debate about whether we should legalize something that is bad and dangerous, but don’t call it medicine — that is a joke.”
This stupidity did not go unnoticed. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) said Wednesday that acting Drug Enforcement Administration chief Chuck Rosenberg should be replaced after calling the notion of smoking marijuana for medical purposes a “joke.”
“Rosenberg is clearly not the right fit for the DEA in this administration,” Blumenauer said during a speech on the House floor Wednesday morning.
Blumenauer hit back at this notion by saying, “What is a joke is the job Rosenberg is doing as acting DEA administrator,” he said. “He’s an example of the inept, misinformed zealot who has mismanaged America’s failed policy of marijuana prohibition.”
He continued: “Rosenberg’s claim that more research is necessary is true, but it reeks of hypocrisy because the DEA under his leadership has made badly needed cannabis research difficult, often impossible.”
Blumenauer also criticized Department of Justice officials for cracking down on state medical marijuana laws, pointing to a recent court ruling in California that declared such intervention illegal.
“Sadly, these actions by administrating officials are indicative of a throwback ideology rooted in the failed war on drugs, which needs to stop,” Blumenauer said.
Blumenauer’s remarks come as a Change.org petition calling on President Barack Obama to fire Rosenberg has gathered over 90,000 signatures.
“It’s great to see members of Congress calling for much-needed change at [the] DEA. Rosenberg’s comments are not only offensive to millions of seriously ill people who rely on medical marijuana, they are out of step with where the vast majority of the American public is on this issue,” said Tom Angell, chairman of Marijuana Majority, the group that started the petition. “Unless President Obama does something about this, it’s going to be an increasingly distracting political problem for his administration.”
The DEA, meanwhile, has stood by Rosenberg’s remarks.
Rosenberg is a former FBI official who took over the agency in May. He replaced Michele Leonhart, who was ‘retired with full government benefits’ due to corruption under her watch.
Meanwhile the inevitable approaches as this article says. The 420nurses were founded not on making money or strangling cannabis for personal gain but through the heartfelt commitment for proper legalization of cannabis, protection and access for MMJ patients, and the principle of One Love for everyone, not because pot saved your life. There is a difference, and that difference is backed up by this force. Be awed!!1 comment
