DEA Blames Media for Making It Difficult to Arrest Pot Offenders
Despite the fact that the DEA regards weed as a drug of negligible concern will less than five percent of law enforcement officials who participated in the agency’s annual assessment summary saying pot was a worrisome issue for them, cannabis remains illegal for all purposes under federal law.
Having admitted that marijuana is not a dangerous drug nor does it cause alarm to law enforcement or the population at large, the DEA continues to insist that an herb—which has not killed or harmed anyone—must remain a Schedule 1 drug, in the same category as heroin.
The recently released DEA summary indeed devotes more time to pot-bashing than warnings about prescription painkillers, which killed more than 20,000 people last year and is responsible for runaway addiction rates.

Cannabis Again Plays a Role in Latest Police Shooting
Cannabis again plays a key role in the latest police shooting of an African American citizen to spark outrage across the country. The prosecutor for Iowa’s Linn County on Dec. 8 announced that a white police officer will not be charged in the shooting that left an unarmed black motorist paralyzed and sparked protests in Cedar Rapids, the county seat.
The Nov. 1 incident began when Cedar Rapids police officer Lucas Jones stopped motorist Jerime Mitchell over a broken tail-light. A missing tail-light is an infraction punishable by a small fine, but Jones said he detected a “strong smell of marijuana” in the car, and ordered Mitchell to get out. Mitchell reportedly struggled as Jones attempted to place him in handcuffs.
