“This is a town where I could probably kill 200 major careers if I wanted to be a complete prick,” says Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), which is headquartered on K Street. “Politicians, members of Congress and the Senate, many of their principals—legislative directors, chiefs of staff, communications directors—people in the private sector, Cato Institute, American Enterprise Institute, Brookings, police, any number of notable journalists from television, print, radio, many brand names most Americans would recognize pretty quickly—I’ve smoked with all of them.

I get so sick of reporting these stories. At least this time it wasn’t reported as a “botched drug raid” or a “drug raid gone awry”. It wasn’t even a drug raid; it was a marijuana raid.

Montgomery Blair Sibley may be best known as the lawyer who defended the D.C. Madam, the infamous escort service owner who claimed to attend to the needs of Washington’s elite.
