In yet another absurd series of exchanges between a DEA agent and a sitting Congressman, the top DEA agent in America refused to say that crack or heroin are worse for someones health than marijuana.
The exchange, filmed during a House Judiciary Subcommittee on June 20th, took place between Colorado Democratic Rep. Jared Polis and Drug Enforcement Agency administrator Michele Leonhart.
The DEA administrator, who was either directly lying our lives in an alternative reality, refused to answer the obvious and documented fact that drugs such as crack, heroin, or meth are much worse than marijuana which is a âdrugâ with a long history of medicinal purposes that have literally helped hundreds of thousands of people.
Polis:Â âIs crack worse for a person than marijuana?â
Leonhart:Â âI believe all illegal drugs are bad,â
Polis:Â âIs methamphetamine worse for somebodyâs health than marijuana?â
Leonhart:Â âI donât think any drugs are good.â
Polis:Â âIs heroin worse for somebodyâs health than marijuana?â
Leonhart:Â Again, all drugs.â
Polis:Â âYes, no, or I donât know?ââIf you donât know this, you can look this up. You should know this, as the chief administrator for the Drug Enforcement Agency. Iâm asking a very straightforward question.â
