The Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) responsibility as it pertains to
marijuana is clearly delineated in federal law. But our responsibility to the public
goes further – to educate you about marijuana with fact and scientific evidence.
DEA supports research into the use of marijuana as a medicine, to be approved
through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) process, the same as required
of all other medicines in the U.S.
We also want the public to understand the ramifications of the use of this drug
and the consequences it will have on our youth and our society as a whole.
