The Drug Enforcement Agency is a joke. Once again they have declined to reschedule cannabis. They still claim it has no medical uses despite the overwhelming evidence. They still liken it to heroin or LSD.
As reported by McClatchy News:
Delivering a big blow to backers of pot legalization, the Obama administration said Thursday that it would keep marijuana classified as one of the nation’s most dangerous drugs, similar to heroin and LSD.
The long-awaited decision by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration keeps intact a 1970 law that lists marijuana as Schedule 1 drug, one defined as having no medical value. That runs counter to decisions made by 26 states that have already approved use of the drug as medicine.
Earth to the DEA:
We can already buy cannabis in strip malls. We know what the herb does to us. Its effects are not a fucking mystery to be solved by men with lab coats or men with machine guns. You look foolish. You look incompetent. You look like petty tyrants desperate to justify your usefulness.
It’s embarrassing and unacceptable. You are not fit to control a domestic army. You are either demented or paid to be wrong. In either case, you’re not fit to rule over free people. You’re a fucking disgrace to an intelligent society.
Your stated goal of “eradicating” cannabis is a laughable failure. You’ve spent a trillion dollars already and ruined countless lives with your terrorism. Yet you’ll probably go on blaming a lack of resources for your patheticness.
But I have good news for you. Your guilty conscience from kidnapping peaceful gardeners and destroying property is coming to an end.
This week, according to Gallup, the number of American adults to admit regular use of cannabis doubled to 13% of the population while those whom admitted trying it rested at 43%.
Last week, for the first time ever, a poll of Republican voters showed majority support for full marijuana legalization.
And a 2015 Gallup poll showed that 58% of the general public supports ending the prohibition of marijuana.
Your days are numbered! It’s best that you go quietly.
In peace and liberty,

I thought the FDA regulated drugs ad the DEA enforced the laws.
Why are they deciding the scheduling? I think that as an agency they’re overreaching
(aka) There never has been a war on drugs.
There always has been a drug war on the competition.
Absolutely, I’ve never heard it put that way but you’re so right!
The government is not reality based. It’s idiocy based.
The problem here is that the science ACTUALLY IS THERE and DOES PROVE that cannabis is useful medicine. They just ignore it. Google “marijuana + nih + cancer”
“”Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants
Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the
treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub.3, and COCH.sub.3. ##STR1## “”
It has been recreationally legal here in Washington for a year and the only effect we have seen is better funding for the state…not that I agree with the state regulating and profiting.
More evidence that the DEA is ruled by Big Pharma, alcohol interests and the prison industrial complex. Just another institution revealed to be untrustworthy.
Ha! I love this. The truth, stated in plain language with honest feeling, is so refreshing.
The DEA is a joke on steroids. One wonders how its agents of mayhem can stand to look at themselves in the mirror knowing they ruined the lives of hundreds of thousands of people for simply exercising their freedom to enjoy a harmless, medicinal plant. What drives these government robo-zealots is a mystery.
Try 1. control, and 2. profits.
if you discover a #3 please tell me.
Satanic Z!on!sm is a good place to start when looking for what drives these government Robo-beasts.
That likely explains the top of the pyramid, and perhaps even the top of the DEA pyramid. I’m more curious (and concerned) about the DEA minions with families and normal lives who carry out all the mindless acts of ENFORCEMENT for a paycheck. These are the people we need to wake up.
I know a couple of border agents. They seem like just plain, old angry people but you can’t generalize from two. Maybe they really think they are protecting our borders and don’t realize they act like prison guards. It’s just one more puzzle to solve.
IF you were to go to manta dot com or dnb dot com and search the drug enforcement agency. You would find that it is nothing more than a private for profit corporation! Did you know that? In fact, you can search any of your favorite government agencies on either manta or dnb and you will discover that the entirety of what passes for government is nothing more than multiple private for profit corporations masquerading as government!
From the supreme court, dept of the army/navy/airforce/marines/coast guard, doj, fbi, nsa, cia, senate, congress etc.. even the states, counties, cities, courts, police departments, school districts, water districts, ALL of it is a GIANT FRAUD!
Don’t take my word for it, I encourage you to research it yourselves, THEN TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW ABOUT THE FRAUD!
Words are inadequate to describe how horrible the US government has become, as shown by the actions of the current liar in chief, head of the most transparent administration ever.
They will not go quietly, unfortunately.
If the gov tells you that it isn’t safe – use it. If it tells you that you don’t need it – get two.
Screw the DEA, SCREW the FDA, SCREW the BLM, SCREW the EPA, SCREW THE ENTIRE OBAMA REGIME AND ALL THE GENERALS THAT HAVE GONE OVER TO THE DARK SIDE WITH HIM !
These people are politically motivated to continue this “Schedule 1” charade because if Cannabis were taken off the schedule, they’d have much less to do. The DEA should be shrunken like a hemorroid.
They NEED to take a toke and lighten the f*ck up! I was going to suggest radiation therapy to shrink them like a cancer, then I realized a fat joint would do the trick just the same!
By legislating that 50 percent of your populace lives outside of the Nations accepted criminal boundaries you effectively establish that over half of the populace is living outside of accepting your authority. The general populace and primarily the youth are in disrespectful non compliance of what this nation purports to represent. We who know the facts are affirming it to ourselves – and taking responsibility for owning ourselves and our reality. We deny your authority.
Since when does the DEA have the authority to dictate law? Is congress inept?
No, just bought.
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha. What a joke.
The US govt has never done anything useful, except for murdering Natives and making Tyrants very rich.
