Fire DEA Head Chuck Rosenberg for Calling Medical Marijuana a "Joke"

This petition had 159,619 supporters

Chuck Rosenberg, acting head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), made highly offensive comments calling medical marijuana a "joke."

While it's nothing new for drug war bureaucrats to oppose sensible marijuana policies, Rosenberg's comments go way too far.

Medical marijuana is not a "joke" to the millions of seriously ill patients in a growing number of states who use it legally in accordance with doctors' recommendations.

It is not a "joke" to the growing number of prominent medical organizations -- American Nurses Association, American College of Physicians, American Academy of Family Physicians, for example -- who know that cannabis has real and proven medical benefits.

And it's not a "joke" to the clear majority of U.S voters who support passing laws to protect medical marijuana patients from harassment by police and the DEA.

President Trump should fire Chuck Rosenberg and appoint a new DEA administrator who will respect science, medicine, patients and voters.
