DEA Agents Had Cartel Sex Parties With Prostitutes While Working In Colombia

dea sex parties columbiaMarijuana activists have been saying for decades that the DEA needs to be de-funded. The agency has caused so much misery and ruined so many lives in the name of the drug war. The money that goes to fund their failed war on drugs could be going to schools, roads, or just about anything else. A story broke yesterday which highlighted just how out of control DEA agents can be. Per Politico:

Agents of the Drug Enforcement Administration reportedly had “sex parties” with prostitutes hired by drug cartels in Colombia, according to a new inspector general report released by the Justice Department on Thursday.

In addition, Colombian police officers allegedly provided “protection for the DEA agents’ weapons and property during the parties,” the report states. Ten DEA agents later admitted attending the parties, and some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days.

The stunning allegations are part of an investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general into claims of sexual harassment and misconduct within DEA; FBI; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the U.S. Marshals Service. The IG’s office found that DEA did not fully cooperate with its probe.

‘Some of the agents received suspensions of two to 10 days.’ Some? So not all of them were suspended? And those that were, were only suspended for 2 to 10 days? This is your tax money at work America. As many people have said on social media, if this isn’t enough to get meaningful change in our federal government’s law enforcement system, what will? The infractions occurred between 2005 and 2008.



Sometimes you just need a Joint.

Dalai Lama backs use of marijuana for medicinal purposes

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, March, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

The Dalai Lama has joined the debate on the legalisation of marijuana by telling an audience in Mexico that he supports its use for medicinal purposes.
Speaking at an event in the state of Guanajuato on Tuesday, Tibet's spiritual leader said that "the exception" for smoking the drug would be if it were for medicinal use, reported AFP.
He clarified his position by adding that he did not support its use as a recreational drug, AFP reported. He was responding to an audience member's question about his position on the legalisation of the drug
The country is currently considering whether to legalise the drug. Mexico's former president Vicente Fox, who was hosting the event, supports its legalisation as a way to divert money from - and break - the country's powerful drug cartels.


New Directions New Orleans: A Public Health And Safety Approach To Drug Policy

Category: News | Posted on Fri, March, 27th 2015 by THCFinder

Louisiana MarijuanaAn unprecedented collection of drug policy stakeholders – including judges, elected officials, public health workers, law enforcement, and community advocates – will come together to chart a new course for Louisiana’s drug policies at New Directions New Orleans on Thursday April 2 from 9am-5pm at Dillard University.

The one-day conference will provide Louisianans with the opportunity to engage many of the leading minds on drug policy and criminal justice reform from across the country and around the world, who will discuss strategies for moving beyond drug war policies and toward a health-centered approach to drug use.

“Louisiana continues to strive to become a more population health focused state, but one of the outstanding issues we face are antiquated drug and criminal justice policies,” said Joe Kimbrell, CEO, Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI). “This collaborative conference will be a strong starting point for these extraordinary partners to begin outlining what new policies and best practices we can utilize to educate our policymakers and create a safer, healthier Louisiana.”

The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate of any country in the world – and Louisiana has the highest rate in the U.S.  Louisiana’s incarceration rate has doubled in the last twenty years and is nearly five times higher than Iran’s, 13 times higher than China’s and 20 times higher than Germany’s.  One of the key drivers of Louisiana’s world-leading incarceration rate is the war on drugs — 18,000 Louisiana residents are arrested for drug law violations each year.

“The drug war has been a catastrophic war on the people of Louisiana,” said Yolande Cadore, director of strategic partnerships at the Drug Policy Alliance. “This gathering is bringing key stakeholders together to find an exit strategy for this failed war on drugs. The time for a new direction in Louisiana is now.”

According to a 2013 report by the American Civil Liberties Union, Louisiana suffers from some of the worst racial disparities in marijuana enforcement of any state in the U.S.  Black Louisianans are arrested for marijuana possession at 3 times the rate as their white counterparts, despite the fact that black and white people use and sell marijuana at similar rates.
