The DEA Spent an Obscene Amount of Money to Eradicate ZERO Pot Plants in Utah
To underscore the absurd amount of money the DEA spends annually on eradicating pot plants, the Washington Postlooked at a series of federal documents that revealed what can only be described as an obscene waste of taxpayers’ money.
The documents, obtained by journalist Drew Atkins through the Freedom of Information Act, showed for example that Utah received $73,000 for marijuana eradication. For that hefty sum, DEA agents did not find a single pot plant.
In New Hampshire, where the DEA received $20,000, they pulled up a grand total of 27 plants in a single outdoor grow site. According to their own Cannabis Eradication Report—a blatant admission of misspending and a must-read during this election year—that comes to $740.74 for each uprooted plant.

2,500-year-old marijuana discovered in an ancient tomb
A 2,500-year-old stash of whole marijuana plants have been unearthed from an ancient tomb in northwest China. This discovery adds to a growing body of evidence that ancient people used marijuana for its psychoactive properties, and incorporated it into their rituals.
A team of archaeologists, led by Hongen Jiang with the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, discovered 13 marijuana plants that were still largely intact, if yellowed and desiccated after millennia underground. In a first for funerary marijuana, the plants were found lying like a burial shroud atop the body of a man who had died in his mid-30s. Their roots lay below the man’s hips and the tips — which had been trimmed to remove the flowers — extended up around his face, according to the publication of the find in the journal Economic Botany.

Ohio Sheriff Wants County to Expand Jail to House Drug Addicts
An Ohio sheriff is hellbent on stuffing as many drug addicts into his jail as possible—a completely different plan than what state officials have been working toward for months.
Earlier this week, Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn told the Associated Press that he was in desperate need of additional jail space in order to compensate for the overcrowding issue caused by an influx of drug addicts. The sheriff said the jail has been forced to create makeshift medical facilities out of its booking department and other areas of the facility, including cells, to make room for the overabundance of prisoners going through opioid withdrawal.
