Reader: Is the DEA chief too stupid to know the difference between pot and hemp?

Leonhart.
We recently posted about a call for the firing of DEA chief Michele Leonhart after she reportedly criticized President Barack Obama's views about marijuana. One reader was dumbfounded by Leonhart's apparent anger over a hemp flag briefly flying at the U.S. Capitol last July 4. Here's his take, featuring an excerpt from the article.

Cognitive_Dissident writes:

"But she said her lowest point in 33 years in the DEA was when she learned they'd flown a hemp flag over the Capitol on July 4."

This is someone who desperately needs a life. Does she know hemp isn't the reefer she fears?

Are Stupid Stoners too pig-ignorant to know that Betsy Ross did NOT sew the first U$ flag, and that the first U$ flag(s) were NOT made of hemp ??


Rule #1 = Pot Pimps ALWAYS LIE


Rule #2 = see rule #1

Let's call the DEA what it is - a business. It's essentially Nixon's war on hippies, and it's profitable, and reprehensible.

Given that the first American flags were crafted from hemp, this is pretty stupid.

All of the DEA needs a serious change and overhaul along with anyone involved currently in government. NONE of our elected officials can get the job done, time to find people that can

If Leonhart had bothered to take an American History class while working on her criminal justice degree, she would be aware that the Betsy Ross flag, as well as most if not all of the flags that flew in the early years of the United States were made from hemp. Her ignorance is equaled only by her arrogance.

Yes, she's an abject moron. Seriously, Google last year's exchange with Rep. Polis. It's priceless.

That's true and a big mistake I'm not a fan of either one to tell you the truth.

She and anyone in the DEA who are trying to continue their conscience-free destruction of good people's lives, need to be homeless and hungry.

Not only should she be fired. Every sheriff that aplauded her ignorant speach has shown there hand so to speak, and should be fired as well. There a corrupt Gang. Nothing more.

Out with the old cronies! Clean out the house and congress as well. I am fed up with our elected officials lining their pockets while ignoring the very people who put them in office.

She works with the Mexican cartels and allowed billions of dollars if meth, cocaine, and heroin to be imported into the uS so they could collect data on the other cartels. Firing line or an old fashion hanging should be in order.

@Samuel Walter ... given that you're a clueless bong-sucking imbecile, it's no surprise you spew such laughable LIES!

@beautypeakwebdesign  <== ignorant lying bong-sucking idiot


1) Betsy Ross did NOT sew the first U$ flag


2) The first U$ flags were NOT made of hemp



Your ignorance is equaled only by your stupidity and your propensity to LIE.

... that's a rather wry comment.

@DonkeyHotay  Don't know who pissed in your Wheaties, but re-read my post. I did not say that the Betsy Ross flag was the first US flag. Can you cite evidence that shows the first US flags weren't made of hemp? Or do you just want to stick with calling people you don't even know names like a 7th grader with serious self esteem issues?

@DonkeyHotay Well, as a bong sucking embecile, I need a little clarification. If I understand you correctly, historical FACT is whatever you say it is, without reference to any outside sources. Did I get that right? Do you have journals to keep track of all that info, or do you have photographic memory.

DonkeyHotay
DonkeyHotay topcommenter

@beautypeakwebdesign  ... only a bong-sucking imbecile would "disagree" with historical FACT.


Stay ignorant, and keep repeating the ignorant lies fed to you by your bong-sucking ignorant friends ... it's what you do best.



beautypeakwebdesign

@DonkeyHotay Actually, I CAN refute it, or at least disagree, until you cite some historical docs that prove your point. I have to admit everything I've read has been second hand, and relies on the fact that hemp was widely used at the time. Please, prove me wrong.

@beautypeakwebdesign ... YOU'RE the one who LIED and falsely claimed the first U$ Flag(s) were made of hemp -- YOU need to provide the evidence.


Fact is, US flags of the era were made of Wool Bunting, just like the colonial flags of the day.


Fact is the Betsy Ross / US flag myth is a total fabrication first made nearly 100 years after US independence. 


Now keep spewing UNFOUNDED BULLSHIT like a typical lying bong-sucking stoner, and then wonder why educated sober society treats you like the idiot that you are.
