Yesterday on the Daily Weekly Ellis E. Conklin noted that eight former U.S. drug chiefs are warning the feds that time is running out to nullify new marijuana legalization laws in Washington and Colorado. Not surprisingly, commenters didn't seem to have much respect for the opinions of these former big wigs.
Today, they warned the feds that time is running out to nullify the new legalization laws and that the government better get its act together -- in a hurry. "My fear is that the Justice Department will do what they are doing now: do nothing and say nothing," former DEA administrator Peter Bensinger told The Associated Press. "If they don't act now, these laws will be fully implemented in a matter of months."
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my.
The former Drug Enforcement Administration chiefs criticized the Obama's administration for moving too slowly to file a lawsuit that would force the states to rescind the legislation,
Marijuana, as we know, remains illegal under federal law.
What really worries Bensinger is the horrible specter that if the federal government doesn't immediate sue these two rogue states then, god forbid, there will be a "domino effect" and other states will legalize weed as well.
To which commenter chas_holman responds:
Who really care's what these 'ex' DEA agents (translation, domestic terrorists) think?
They had their day in the sun and they screwed up a lot of peoples lives and didn't solve or slow down a darn thing regarding marijuana, each of them is responsible for the lies and the mess we are now trying to climb out of.
They literally fed an illegal black-market bonanza with their 'wizdum'.
Goodness, they have no shame even in retirement.. but I bet most have fully stocked bars at home, as they lay back and dream of the good ol days when they rounded up oft peaceful grass smokers and destroyed their lives and took their things unchallenged'.
No bigger money laundering operation, than what Law Enforcement can do with all those unaudited confiscations of others property and money. It is a complete subsidy and 'welfare' for law enforcement, and quite frankly, most Americans are awkae to this and have becomes sickened by the charade and want it over now. Enough is enough.. the same hand has been played over and over with the same result.. stop the insanity.
