DEA agents in San Diego conducted a raid late on Friday night, 4/20, as seven college kids were celebrating the marijuana holiday. The feds swooped in and rounded up seven suspects as well as marijuana, ecstasy, mushrooms, “bath salts”, and prescription meds. They took the seven into custody, handcuffed them, and placed them in various holding cells for processing. The only problem was that DEA then only released six of the suspects and completely forgot about 23-year-old Daniel Chong for five days with no food or water.

When I was in Orlando, the college kids of University of Central Florida told me about the “pill mill” epidemic referred to in this report. The way they described it, it sounded like the image our opponents paint of medical marijuana in California. ”Yeah, you can go to a shady little fake clinic,” one young man told me, “complain about pain, get a script from a shady doc, and get yourself 500 OxyContin pills, no problem.” Another told me of a friend of his who gets the OxyContin to sell so he can buy the ridiculously overpriced marijuana in Florida.

He says he was treated like one Tuesday morning around 2:00 a.m. when he woke up to find DEA agents banging loudly on the door.
“As soon as I opened the door, somebody grabbed me and took me outside and put me on the grass,” Tossa said. “The first thing I thought was they were terrorists who want to kill me because I served in Iraq.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration told Legalization Nation in an e-mail last week that 55 unnamed companies now hold licenses to grow cannabis in the United States, a fact that contradicts the widespread belief that there is only one legal pot farm in America, operated under the DEA for research purposes.

In 2002, the Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis submitted a petition to request that marijuana be reclassified, but they have never received an answer. Today, they filed a lawsuit in the Washington DC Circuit Court asking for President Obama’s administration to respond to the petition.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, state and local law enforcement agencies conducted the searches at offices in northwest suburban Detroit, Andrew Eiseman, group supervisor for the DEA in Detroit, said.
California, check. Nevada, check. Montana, check. Michigan, check. Because, apparently, our federal law enforcement officials don’t have “violent crimes and potential terrorism… to deal with” anymore.
