45. DEA are scum.
Many of them are corrupt, and engaged in the sort of thing the article describes. The ones who aren't, think they are saving the world by enforcing absurd laws that make criminals out of anyone who chooses to explore the effects of mind-altering substances. Those who are drawn to the drug enforcement occupation are control freaks, who need to mind their own beeswax, as does the government they work for.

Lagalization is all about harm reduction. The fact that these substances are illegal is the biggest problem with any of them. The actual effects of any of these illegal drugs are far less dangerous than the fact that they are sold on the black market, therefore demanding absurd prices, and create all the nefarious activities that go with that.

Most illegal substances are plant derived, and these plants have every right to exist and to be utilized by the more adventurous and curious sorts of folks like myself who have come to appreciate them.

The idiotic laws against drugs are directly responsible for all the violence and killing that we are seeing in Mexico (and elsewhere).
