How much more surreal can the DEA get?

Now I’m a full-blown opponent of the death penalty. I think it’s immoral, impractical, unfairly administered, and has way too much potential for error.

Wearing them out.  It’s a battle of persistence that we need to win.

It’s a tactic that the federal government has regularly used against us. Wear them out. Allow for a system of re-scheduling marijuana, but let it take 20 years to go through the process of appeals and denials and maybe we’ll just get tired of trying.

It’s been an effective tactic in stalling progress,...
