At the beginning of last week, the Justice Department stated that Chuck Rosenberg, who worked as chief of staff to the director of the FBI, would be coming in to take over Leonhart’s position as the administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Rosenberg is an “exceptional leader” with “unshakable integrity” in a document regarding his appointment, however enthusiast of marijuana reform have been left pondering whether the change will be for better or end being a bad move.
Even if there was reason to believe that the individual ultimately charged with defending the integrity of the Controlled Substance Act Would not avert from the agencies ancient handbook of shakedowns and different sneaky tactics pointed at locking away the average American with a love for pot, a recent report taken from the Los Angeles Times implies that Rosenberg will not display heavy attention on indiscretions involving cannabis.
