How Does the DEA Feel about Medical Marijuana in DC?
"Officials with the DEA were not available to comment Tuesday," reports The Washington Post. I guess that pretty much sums it up. No scolding, vague threats or dire predictions. Just silence.
I don't find it at all surprising that DEA would decline to comment at a time like this, but it's a little creepy nonetheless. Dispensaries will soon be opening in the Nation's Capital, just a short distance from the headquarters of the federal drug war. If the DEA has a problem with that, now is the time to speak up. If there's anything we can do to minimize the likelihood of your tactical units raiding these facilities with guns drawn and terrifying patients, we'd love to know what that is.
Nothing? Ok, then. We will interpret your silence to mean that you're cool with this.
