DEA Chief: Marijuana Legalization Just ‘Makes Us Fight Harder’

Far from being discouraged by the shifts in public opinion, state laws and even within the Obama administration on the legalization of marijuana, federal drug agents are now driven to “fight harder,” Drug Enforcement Administration chief Michele Leonhart said Wednesday.

    Native son to the red dirt here and I have to say this is a tragically structured site that uses fear tactics and scare campaigns to propagate the uneducated agenda of a by-gone era. As a Texan I can proudly say our state has the most to gain from legalizing the production of hemp and marijuana products. Tragically the back water ideology of the older generation is retarding the development of our homeland. It is comforting to know that, one day, the ignorant people in the world will either be educated or pass away so that the world can be a better place without you.

    The anti pot Illuminati as well as the hippy haters and buyers of wolfe tickets are still strong in Texas…I had hoped they would have died off by now and had no offspring…may they rot in hell and take these robber politicians with them for the ride…

    The state of Texas would sorely miss the revenue they raise and the shame they pile on pot smokers here if pot were legalized. And it is obvious that the legal system here hates pot smokers. They even have two laws for prosecuting pot smokers – one is a simple traffic type ticket with a fine – but of course they choose the other version of dragging people through the court systems, jails, prisons, names in the papers, permanent drug criminal records that the poor and middle class cannot afford to get expunged if they can even find a lawyer to handle it. Probation, fees, fines, piss tests, more court, unannounced house raids, property confiscation, lawyer fees, ect. A simple joint can cost the convicted person as much as $10,000.00 by the time these thieves get through and will never get a decent job again…that’s what is going on in Colorado, the cops are missing the revenue from robbing people caught with a joint or small amount and their media dogs are selling propaganda to try and bias another vote to fix the legalization vote….

    Oh, and I forgot, in Texas you lose you drivers license even if you are not a pot user, have to get a occupational license and SR22 for two years, Go to court, get a lawyer, and pay several hundred dollars. Just like an automatic DUI with no proof that you committed a crime…
