Obama DOJ to Allow More ICE Agents to Make Drug Busts

Attorney General Eric Holder told the Senate today the Administration will begin allowing more ICE agents to make drug busts.

So much for a new direction for the War on Drugs. Where's our legislation ending the crack disparity and eliminating some mandatory minimums? Obviously, on the back burner, once again.

    and I'll once again be serving up platters of prawns and other delectable snacks. Who's on bar duty?  

    We may need to do a bit of rearranging to accommodate more busunders. Could be a busy summer . . .  but, as in the past, we are all in good company!

    I've been under the bus my whole adult life...so I'm used to working in confined spaces:)

    If my gay friends under the bus are looking for a bright side...at least they don't lock ya up for being gay anymore, they do if you're a pothead.  I know...not quite the same because potheads aren't born that way, though I can't shake the feeling it is engrained in my dna somewhere:)
