More than three years after the FBI shut down the Silk Road, the pioneering dark-web marketplace for drugs and illegal goods, the FBI and DEA – working with international law-enforcement agencies – have busted two more dark-web marketplaces that facilitated the sales of illicit items like drugs, weapons and stolen data, according to the Department of Justice.

AlphaBay and Hansa, two of the largest illegal marketplaces on the dark web, have been shut down and their operators arrested during a collaboration between US and European police agencies, according to the BBC. Investigations were led by the FBI and DEA in partnership with Europol.

Former DEA “Chief Propagandist” Says Agency Knows Cannabis Is Safe, Keeps It Illegal for Profit

Former DEA “Chief Propagandist” Says Agency Knows Cannabis Is Safe, Keeps It Illegal for Profit:

A former “chief propagandist” for the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), now turned cannabis advocate, made startling comments at the recent Marijuana for Medical Professionals Conference in Denver, Colorado. There, Belita Nelson described what many of us suspected – the DEA is corrupt to the bone and full of lies.

Marijuana is safe, we know it is safe. It’s our cash cow and we will never give up,” Nelson said to the audience of doctors and nurses, describing the actual modus operandi of the DEA.

#Cannabis – No, the DEA Hasn’t Made CBD Oil Illegal… Yet

No, the DEA Hasn’t Made CBD Oil Illegal… Yet:

“People need to understand that there are federal laws that the DEA cannot bypass,” a hemp industry professional tells MintPress News regarding CBD oil.

(MPN)Austin, TX An administrative change by the Drug Enforcement Administration has left users of CBD oil, a popular tincture derived from agricultural hemp, fearful that they could lose access to this vital health remedy.

CBD oil is currently considered legal in all 50 states, and agricultural hemp, a non-psychoactive variety of the cannabis plant from which CBD oil is extracted, is legally grown in many states. While scientific research into its benefits is just beginning, preliminary results show that CBD oil can benefit conditions ranging from epilepsy to chronic pain.

DEA reschedules highly therapeutic, non-psychoactive*, Cannabis CBD oil as a Schedule 1 drug (VIDEO)

JUST FLAT OUT STUPID! DEA reschedules highly therapeutic, non-psychoactive*, CBD oil as a Schedule 1 drug (VIDEO):

This is just criminal. CBD oil isn’t even psychoactive* but helps many people deal with epilepsy and other debilitating diseases. Truly, this is just disgusting and whoever made this decision should have to look the parents of a child suffering with uncontrollable epilepsy – a child who previously had his or her symptoms under control because of simple CBD – right in the eye and say to them that CBD oil is a bad thing. There is no justification for this action from the Feds. There is no sane reason. It is a horrible decision that will contribute to the suffering of thousands if not millions of Americans.

There should be Congressional hearings around this. How could this possibly have happened? The DEA has too much power. End the War on Drugs.

*In the sense that CBD gets one high anyway.

DEA Has Deliberately Blocked Marijuana Research For 40 Years, Generating Massive Profits From The ‘Drug War’

marijuana-cannabis

DEA blocked marijuana research for 40 years, generating massive profits from the ‘drug war’ while committing heinous acts against growers:

The medicinal value of cannabis cannot be ignored. This healing plant has successfully been used for treatment of pain, insomnia, rheumatoid arthritis, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, seizure disorders, and even cancer.

Despite its long history of medicinal use throughout the world, cannabis has remained an illegal, controlled substance in the US, aggressively pursued by government agents for many decades. The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) gained significant authority over cannabis after the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 was signed into law. Once enacted, the DEA created a scheduling system that classified different substances according to their potential for addiction and abuse. Without any scientific backing, the DEA put cannabis at the top of the list – a schedule one drug with the greatest potential for addiction, with no medicinal value whatsoever.
