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

This petition had 159,440 supporters

Marijuana Majority started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

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.
