Petition Calls for DEA to “Stop Lying” About Cannabis
The Weed Blog recently reported on a change.org petition asking President Obama to force the DEA to tell the truth about cannabis. According to the petition, it is “illegal for federal agencies to disseminate incorrect information.” The writers of the petition point out that the DEA has admitted that certain negative claims about cannabis are not based in fact, including the gateway drug theory and cannabis leading to psychosis or brain damage. The DEA’s website continues to distribute information that they’ve elsewhere admitted is false. The petitioners have found 25 instances of contradictory claims on the DEA’s website.
