    Former DEA ‘Propagandist’ Says Agency Knows Marijuana Is Safe – High Times
    Zealots, hired guns, good Germans—call them what you will, but it would be hard to call the men and women of the Drug Enforcement Administration dummies.

    The DEA does not hire just anyone; its agents are the out-performers and overachievers among law enforcement—maybe not quite FBI or CIA material, but still head-and-shoulders above the cops spending careers doing traffic stops in small towns.

    All this to say, the DEA is aware of science and it is aware of data. It cannot preach ignorance. But ..............
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The only reason there has been a scare tactic on pot is because the Government had too much money to lose in multiple areas. The only way to keep that going is to keep pot illegal.
    The method they used is easy once again it started in the Government " Say no to drugs " where our trusted authority figure parents started the brainwashing of it, then it trickeled down into the schools where the indoctriantion to scare the hell out of people is really impacted and the choice to walk away from it wasn't there because why it's the " LAW" you have to put your kid in school , and why is it a law when it shouldn't be.

    Remember whether you believe it or not THE STATE OWNS YOUR KID(s) esp. today.

    If you look hard enough, you can find a former DEA agent who will agree with anything you might say. The RWNJs figured that out quite a while ago.

    Does it matter? I'm not commenting on the validity if the claim.Just that it's easy to find a ex DEA agent somewhere to back up anything you want to say.

    Again, you demonstrate abject ignorance. You're using the same bogus sarcasm those of us who found out the hard way used 45 years ago. Refer madness was the joke we used in order to scoff at those who opposed pot use. But that was 45 years ago. Before some of us found out the hard way. You're so cutting-edge.
    Why are lefties like you so rigidly close minded so as to not even consider any info that doesn't jibe with your own insulated world view?
