Top DEA agent won’t admit heroin more harmful than marijuana

This was beautiful..
Read and watch this and see your DEA at work...
If you think Holder was bad... Watch and see this woman's responses....


During a House Judiciary Subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, Drug Enforcement Administrator Michele Leonhart repeatedly refused to admit that anything was more addictive or harmful than marijuana.

Democratic Rep. Jared Polis of Colorado pressed Leonhart on whether illegal drugs like methamphetamine and crack, as well as legal prescription drugs, caused greater harm to public health compared to marijuana. But within a three minute time-span, Leonhart dodged his questions eleven times.

“Is crack worse for a person than marijuana?” Polis, who has called for an end to marijuana prohibition, asked.

“I believe all illegal drugs are bad,” Leonhart responded.

“Is methamphetamine worse for somebody’s health than marijuana?” Polis continued. “Is heroin worse for somebody’s health than marijuana?”


“Again, all drugs,” Leonhart began to say, only to be cut off by Polis.

“Yes, no, or I don’t know?” Polis said. “If you don’t know this, you can look this up. You should know this, as the chief administrator for the Drug Enforcement Agency. I’m asking a very straightforward question.”

3. She won't admit ANYTHING,

sounds just like rmoney. Really should get her out of that position.
There are ways, diplomatically, to convey a desired message while, at the same time, actually answering questions!

5. That was one of the most embarrassing performances..

I've ever seen from a government figure. The non answers by Leonhart spoke volumes about the government's justification for the continued war on pot users.

In a just America, Marijuana would be legalized, the DEA disbanded..
