Discussion in 'Marijuana News from The USA' started by RMJL, Feb 26, 2003.

  1. I got this email from Kris Krane at NORML. Please send the letters out guys!!! We could make a difference!



    If you feel the need to be a bit more anonymous, here is the email address to the Department of Justice, just make sure you put in the subject field something related to this topic.

    AskDOJ@usdoj.gov.




    Friends:

    Recently the federal government has implemented "Operation Pipe Dreams" and
    "Operation Headhunter," which have resulted in the indictment of at least 50
    online paraphernalia distributors.

    At a time when our nation is at an elevated risk of a terror attack, it is
    preposterous that the U.S. Justice Department would waste limited federal
    law enforcement resources chasing after sellers of products such as roach
    clips and rolling papers, products which are legally sold at tobacco stored
    all across America. These businesses pay taxes and do not in any way
    contribute to the crime problem in America. To target them at this time
    shows a total lack of understanding as to which risks truly threaten the
    health, welfare and safety of America's citizens.

    It is time for the Justice Department to reassess its priorities and stop
    wasting federal law enforcement resources on such trivial endeavors. Federal
    efforts would undoubtedly be better served keeping a bomb out of the hands
    of Al Queda than keeping a bong out of the hands of a marijuana smoker.

    Please take five minutes to write John Ascroft and tell him to shut down
    "Operation Pipe Dreams" and "Operation Headhunter" by visiting:

  2. Since the Department of Justice is wasting federal law enforcement resources on this, here is how to report complaints that I copied off of their site. Just another place to send our emails to try to stop this from happening.








    How to Report a Complaint about Violation of your Civil Rights or Civil Liberties
    by a Department of Justice Employee:

    The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigates allegations of fraud, waste, abuse, and misconduct by Department of Justice employees, contractors, and grantees. The OIG is an independent entity within the Department of Justice that reports to both the Attorney General and Congress on issues that affect the Department's personnel or operations.

    The OIG has jurisdiction over all complaints of misconduct against Department of Justice employees, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Naturalization Service, Federal Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Marshals Service, United States Attorneys Offices, and employees who work in other Divisions or Offices in the Department of Justice. (The one exception is that allegations of misconduct involving Department attorneys that arise from their authority to investigate, litigate, or provide legal advice are the responsibility of the Department's Office of Professional Responsibility.)

    Section 1001 of the USA Patriot Act, signed into law by the President on October 26, 2001, directs the Inspector General to review information and receive complaints alleging abuses of civil rights and civil liberties by Department of Justice employees. The OIG has created a special section in its Investigations Division to process these complaints. This section will identify the more serious civil rights and civil liberties allegations and assign them to OIG employees for investigation. The OIG will refer other complaints to Department components for their review and handling.

    Individuals who believe that a Department of Justice employee has violated their civil rights or civil liberties may contact the OIG by mail:
