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.

“Is crack worse for a person than marijuana?” Polis, who has called for an end to marijuana prohibition, asked.

“I believe all illegal drugs are bad,” Leonhart responded.

    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.

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

       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.

        she’s a robot doing exactly what she was programmed to do
        unfortunately
        her programmers are robots too

  • DeepCough

    I don’t expect someone like the Chief Administrator of the DEA to admit the lie that there is anything wrong with Cannabis (marijuana), because, after all, the existence of the DEA is staked on such a lie that predates the Nixon administration.
