And gosh darn it people like us.
The DEA recently raided a licensed legal (in California) Medical Marijuana dispensary. When you are arresting Americans for consensual victimless crime it can be hard to get the attention you deserve. To keep feeling relevant drug warriors always throws out self affirming quotes.
“The marijuana traffickers arrested today claimed to sell the drug for medicinal value, but it’s clear that marijuana’s financial value was their true motivation,” said Timothy J. Landrum, Special Agent in Charge of the DEA in Los Angeles.
So, it’s capitalism they are protecting us from. I hope the DEA shuts down Pfizer and every other evil profit making drug company.
“There was no care, treatment or compassion shown to our operatives during any of our undercover buys, and marijuana was sold to our agents for 2 to 3 times the cost on the streets “said Steve Bolts, Undersheriff, San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Department.
The lesson; Be more compassionate to undercover officers and don’t charge so much for weed. My idea for dispensaries- Coupons and free hugs for undercover agents.
“DEA and our law enforcement counterparts will not turn a blind eye to flagrant disregard of our nation’s essential drug laws—laws designed to protect our citizens, communities, and children.”
How can you argue with protecting children? You don’t hate CHILDREN do you? I never understood how arresting parents who engage in victimless crime helps children, but maybe that’s why I don’t prosecute anymore. I bet children all across California will sleep easy knowing that the 33,000 missing sex offenders in the state are not smoking medical marijuana.
