Top DEA Agent Won’t Admit Heroin More Harmful Than Marijuana

There’s some reefer madness going on at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Eric W. Dolan reports for The Raw Story:

During a House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, Drug Enforcement Administrator Michele Leonhart repeatedly refused to admit that anything was more addictive or harmful than marijuana.

Democratic Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado pressed Leonhart on whether illegal drugs like methamphetamine and crack, as well as legal prescription drugs, caused greater harm to public health compared to marijuana. But within a three minute time-span, Leonhart dodged his questions eleven times.

    It’s dangerous because it’s illegal, it’s illegal because it’s dangerous. Duh! It’s so obvious! This is not incredibly flawed logic at all.

    Watching this incenses me. Rarely have I ever wanted to strangle a female so vigorously.

  6. It was really unfair to expect her to choose. The DEA loves all drugs equally. 

  7. she worked for Bush
    she now works for Obama
    do the math
    or do the meth and forget about it

    •  Still a lying bloated cow sucking up tax payer dollars as a result of continuing the war on people using drugs. Lying animals like her should be in prison no millions of harmless drug users.

  9. The true face of evil. A devil in disguise.

  10. All drugs are bad mmm’kay
