Acting DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg brought some heat down on himself earlier this month when he called the concept of medical marijuana “a joke.” Since then, several prominent activists have been pressuring the Obama Administration to dismiss Rosenberg from his post. It even prompted the national advocacy group the Marijuana Majority to launch a petition against the nation’s leading drug enforcer that has so far garnered over 93,000 signatures.
However, the heat generated by Rosenberg’s loose lips has now become a raging inferno, prompting federal lawmakers to take a stand against his ignorance this week on Capitol Hill. On Wednesday,Congressman Earl Blumenauer took to the House floor to call upon Uncle Sam to provide the nation with a new DEA head that falls more in line with the opinions of the American majority.
Calling Rosenberg a “joke” and “an example of an inept, misinformed zealot,” Blumenauer argued that the attitudes over well over half the United States population does not stand behind the failed drug war policies that the leader of the DEA insists on propagating across the land.
