DEA Paid Millions in Workers’ Comp Benefit to Confidential Informants

Category: News | Posted on Fri, July, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Confidential informants have been receiving millions of dollars in workers’ compensation benefits for their service to the Drug Enforcement Administration. On Tuesday, the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General released an infuriating report that tells the tale of federal dope sniffers spending obscene amounts of the taxpayer’s money over the past 40 years to pay degenerates injured or killed while collecting evidence against the black market drug trade. 

In an audit spawned by allegations regarding the DEA’s handing of working class tattletales, the federal watchdog discovered that some of these informants were being paid $500 per week in worker’s compensation while also continuing to earn federal wages for being a rat.

The report finds that between 1997 and 2012, the DEA spent over $2 million paying confidential informants for worker’s compensation benefits, bonuses, and expenses. Although federal employees, such as U.S. postal workers, have the right to collect insurance benefits if they are hurt on the job, the report speculates that felonious thugs and career dope dealers may not exactly meet the criteria spelled out by Uncle Sam’s human resources department.

Seniors Are Seeking Out States Where Marijuana is Legal

Category: News | Posted on Thu, July, 23rd 2015 by THCFinder

The top moving destination in 2014 was Oregon, which voted to legalize marijuana last November.
When choosing retirement locales, a few factors pop to mind: climate, amenities, proximity to grandchildren, access to quality healthcare.
Chris Cooper had something else to consider – marijuana laws.
The investment adviser from Toledo had long struggled with back pain due to a fractured vertebra and crushed disc from a fall. He hated powerful prescription drugs like Vicodin, but one thing did help ease the pain and spasms: marijuana.
So when Cooper, 57, was looking for a place to retire, he ended up in San Diego, since California allows medical marijuana. A growing number of retirees are also factoring in the legalization of pot when choosing where to spend their golden years.

Back in the Spring world famous musician Willie Nelson announced that he would be coming out with his own strain of marijuana, called Willie’s Reserve. Almost instantly mainstream media ate up the story. After all, it’s a logical business move considering how synonymous Willie Nelson is with marijuana. It sounds like the first harvests are coming in the near future, and Willie’s Reserve marijuana strain could be on store shelves as early as September. Per Marijuana Business Daily:

In just two months, Colorado recreational shops may have some serious star power to contend with.

Country music legend Willie Nelson is planning on having his own personal strain, dubbed Willie’s Reserve, available in his own line of shops – and his plans might come to fruition as soon as September.

Nelson told Texas TV station KSAT that he’s hoping the strain will be ready by then. The singer, who first announced his new business plans in March, originally said he expected to be getting into the Colorado cannabis industry next year but apparently has moved up his timeline.
