The DEAs Response To Marijuana Legalization

  1. DEA admits marijuana legalization 'scares us'

    A top official at the US Drug Enforcement Administration has said that legalizing marijuana, a drug that a majority of Americans are now in favor of decriminalizing, is "reckless and irresponsible."

    James L. Capra, the chief of operations at the DEA, was responding to a question from a senator Wednesday when he admitted authorities are nervous about the prospect of legalization measures, which are becoming more popular throughout the US after decriminalization initiatives passed in Colorado and Washington.

    "I have to say this...going down the path to legalization in this country is reckless and irresponsible," he said. "I'm talking about the long term impact of legalization in the United States. It scares us."

    but kicking in non violent citizens doors, and hauling them off to jail is not reckless and irresponsible..

    the last time they repealed a prohibition they said the same things...mof..they do it every time... :laughing:

    history has an odd way of repeating itself for those that forget... :bongin:
  9. Oh how the pirates fight when their boat is sinking. I love it.
  10. Some random: "Oh, won't someone think of the children"
    My response: Pull out a shotgun and shoot you "shut the fuck up"
    But anyways..... boy don't the DEA love communism..... you should suck kim jong un cock..... hehe..... maybe kim jong un won't let the DEA suck his cock, because weed is legal there..... hahaha
    Kim jong un > US government and DEA...... fuck yeah
  11. fucking shill
    Yea tell that to the people who staved there in the 1990s during the famines
  13. At least weed is legal there..... eh....
    Yea that makes living under an oppressive despot unnoticeable. 
  15. I'd be scared too. It's way easier to pump their numbers up to make easy busts on non violent pot growers, than say some tweakers doing dangerous stuff. Those guys are probably a lot more of a hassle to deal with than some random person growing some plants.
    Maybe they will spend some time going after the more dangerous drugs on the streets. But that's a scary thought.
    You'd think they forgot about them entirely as much of a stink as they are making over the money they are about to lose.
  17. I would say that the US is just equally oppressive as north korea.....
    not really the land of the free if the US government want to be an asshat
  18. Im from Australia so my viewpoint may not be correct but...Marijuana legalisation, which coinsides with alcohol and tobacco, will be taxed greatly and could be a very possible way to 'try' and claw their (US Goverment) way out of their Debt. This will take years to completely make it out and at the rate their spending rates are going will barely help at all. THE US GOVERNMENT IS FUCKING UP THE ECONOMY. I have noticed in Australia and they are not alone, but the police forces are being militarized, greatly thanks to a few governments that are not helping our world out! #LegaliseNatureSent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
