ah, the article mentions the source
[quore]The DEA Lawyer had told the lawyer representing a DEA informant of the DEA's plan to legalize medicinal cannibis nationwide on August 1, 2016.
i just figured an administrative dea lawyer would not be talking to a dea informant lawyer. but that is of course, just my guess. maybe this is just the paper making up things to hide its real source?
but now i see your point. i'm not sure what DEA lawyer entails,
The experts that interpret the legal framework for the thousands of DEA employees engaged in anti-narcotic and anti-terrorist operations are the agency’s attorneys. These highly qualified legal experts provide instruction across a broad spectrum of agency activities. They are also the point of contact between the DEA and the judicial system.
Attorneys at the DEA are critical to the successful fulfillment of agency responsibilities including the apprehension, detention and prosecution of domestic and international criminals. They provide the legal basis for entering homes, conducting searches, and eliciting information from perpetrators. They research federal, international and state statutes and provide legal guidelines to field operatives so that criminal cases can be pursued with success.
DEA lawyers also administer a variety of legal proceedings through federal courts. Lawyers routinely request court approval for wiretaps, warrants and international extraditions.
scum of the earth.
so it could be the atty who is responsible for illegal wiretapping and paralell construction or it could be the dea atty who wispers the illegal wiretap info to law enforcement or any number of secret lawyers doing illegal and unconstitutional things.
or this could be another one of those weird press releases , like harborside in california. where harborside says the prosecution is over, but this cannot be confirmed with the DEA , and everyone is just hoping if you say something it becomes true.
guess we'll find out in august!
that washingtonpost pdf is interesting.
because it states exactly how much research has been done on marijuana in the past 5 years in the usa.
The data included also detailed the total cannabis shipments made between 2010 and 2015:
2010: 19 shipments to 9 researchers
2011: 21 shipments to 8 researchers
2012: 16 shipments to 9 researchers
2013: 15 shipments to 8 researchers
2014: 23 shipments to 12 researchers
2015: 23 shipments to 8 researchers, 4 pending requests
research on marijuana has been stifled by NIDA, FDA and the DEA.
