Cannabis at the Bottom of DEA’s “Threat List”

But of course they have a threat list.


The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) asked a nationally represented sample of over 1,000 law enforcement agencies what they viewed as their biggest drug threats. Marijuana ranked at the bottom of the list, named by only 6% of survey respondents as the biggest threat.

The share of law enforcement agencies naming pot has been declining steadily since the mid-2000s, even as states have moved to legalize medical and recreational marijuana during that time period.
. . .
The findings indicate a statement by law enforcement, proving a fact that drug policy experts and researchers have known for a long time: compared to other recreational substances, including alcohol, marijuana doesn’t cause that much harm. It’s probably even safer than many people think. And whether you’re worried about potential harms to individuals or to communities, marijuana is very low on the list of recreational substances.
