Was Medical Marijuana Lab Raided by the DEA?

Commentary

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)– I posted the story a couple weeks ago about a medical marijuana lab in Denver being raided by the DEA, but it turns out the lab inadvertently led agents to their doors.

According to Betty Aldworth, the lab’s director of outreach, employees were caught off guard by the Drug Enforcement Administration’s visit because they did everything they could to be in compliance with DEA requirements, even formally applying for an analytical lab license.

“We didn’t need to do that, but we thought it was the right thing to do,” Aldworth told the Denver Westword. But as it turns out, doing the right thing isn’t always the best solution, at least not with the DEA. Since the lab did in fact apply for a license through the DEA, the law requires the DEA to follow up on the suitability of applicants for permits, including investigating whether the applicant is in violation of any federal laws.

So, technically the lab was not raided. But should it really be a priority of the DEA to investigate an organization whose sole purpose is to test the potency of a legitimate medicine to help legitimate patients?
