What bullshit!  These assholes have nothing better to do than chase stoners, and people who use cannabis for medical purposes.  My almost non-existent esteem of lawyers has dipped to a new low.

If this isn’t pure, unadulturated BULLSHIT to the Nth degree, I don’t know what is!  Let’s hope that Trump de-funds the DEA!  (I won’t hold my breath.)

AuntieBS has always been critical of the DEA, who lies through their teeth to preserve jobs, who has wasted more than a $TRILLION dollars in the bogus war on drugs, all the while enabling $5 hits of heroin and methamphetamine to be ubiquitous all across the country.  What’s the point of this useless agency?

Just incredible!  CBD is not psychoactive and should be in the same category as over-the-counter supplements, like herbal teas, echinacea, ginger, Valerian root, chamomile, etc.  But, because it offers medicinal help, the DEA bans it to support big phramaceutical companies.  I sure would like to see the DEA disbanded, as they’ve sucked more than a trillion dollars in tax money, and what have they accomplished?  A million people in prison, $5 heroin, and ubiquitous methamphetamine.  If a company was that effective, it would be bankrupt.  Why is Congress not chastising them and defunding them over such disingenuous ineffectiveness?
