DEA Chief Calls Medicinal Marijuana A Joke (POLL)
Colorado is known for a lot of things these days. Mountains, snow, undefeated NFL teams - thanks, Broncos - and yes, marijuana. The big enchilada in the DEA just called medicinal marijuana use "a joke" and "dangerous". Does this mean we're not getting a Christmas card from him this year?
CBS News is reporting that DEA Chief Chuck Rosenberg is not a fan of marijuana use of any sort. Here's what they had to say.
DEA chief Chuck Rosenberg on Wednesday rejected the notion that smoking marijuana is "medicine," calling the premise a "joke."
"What really bothers me is the notion that marijuana is also medicinal -- because it's not," Rosenberg said in a briefing to reporters. "We can have an intellectually honest debate about whether we should legalize something that is bad and dangerous, but don't call it medicine -- that is a joke."
