Former DEA Heads Urge Government to Repeal Washington, Colorado Marijuana Laws

Eight former DEA chiefs have urged the federal government to destroy the marijuana reform that states Colorado and Washington have worked so hard to create.

The former drug chiefs have criticized the Obama administration for moving too slowly to file a lawsuit against the two states.

“My fear is that the Justice Department will do what they are doing now: do nothing and say nothing,” former DEA administrator Peter Bensinger told The Associated Press in an interview Monday. “If they don’t act now, these laws will be fully implemented in a matter of months.”

Aside from attacking the administration’s time management skills, Bensinger and the rest of the former DEA heads’ argument against marijuana is still stuck in the archaic belief that all drugs are bad for you.
