DEA Doing Disservice

RECEIVED Wed., Sept. 27, 2006

Dear Editor of The Austin Chronicle,
    The Drug Enforcement Agency is doing a disservice to America's election process [“Weed Watch,” News, Sept. 8], making a mockery out of the law-enforcement rant: If you don't like the laws, change them.
    While DEA Agent Michael Moore was quoted (in Boulder, Colo.), "We're in favor of ... working based on all the facts," it's worth noting that "DEA facts" is an oxymoron. The DEA is the last place to get "facts" about cannabis. They're experts on prohibition, not cannabis. Their justification behind cannabis prohibition is, and always has been, based on lies; everything the DEA says about cannabis is suspect and should be researched by voters.
    Fact is, relegalizing cannabis is past due, and the DEA should step aside while Colorado and Nevada lead the nation back on track to obey Christ, God our Father in relegalizing cannabis, bringing peace on Earth, and utilizing one of the great creations God has to offer.
