Bush Crony Working for Obama Seeks to Undermine Medical Marijuana Industry

By Mason Tvert, Executive director and co-founder, SAFER

According to an e-mail just unearthed by Complete Colorado, a Bush holdover in the U.S. Drug Czar’s office is fishing for information that links crime to the growing number of medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.

The e-mail is addressed to Colorado’s chief medical officer, Ned Calonge, at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and it appears to be authored by an Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) research assistant on behalf of former Bush (and current Obama) drug warrior Kevin Sabet.
