Is Drug Enforcement Administration Chief Asa Hutchinson nuts or poxed? Los 
Angeles marijuana raids aimed at the sick and dying for DEA fun and frolic 
demonstrate a pathetic paucity of understanding and compassion.

If there is any silver lining to the terrorists' cloud, it is the federal 
distraction from anti-drug mania and prohibition myopia. When will 
Americans elect their first drug policy reform president to right all the 
wrong-footed little DEAs who keep stepping on the people?
