As Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy will conduct the confirmation hearings for Acting DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart. Ms. Leonhart has been nominated by President Obama to be the new administrator of the DEA.
Please urge Senator Leahy to aggressively question Ms. Leonhart about recent medical marijuana raids.
Over the past two months, the DEA has raided two separate laboratories that happened to run tests on the strength and purity of medical marijuana. There have also been raids on two private cultivators in Colorado and up to 12 private cultivators in Hawaii. To make matters worse, the federal government has assisted local law enforcement in dozens of other raids in California, Colorado, and Michigan.
Let the U.S. Senate know that these actions are unacceptable.
Urge U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy to ask Michele Leonhart tough questions about DEA medical marijuana raids.
