Designer Anabolic Steroid Control Act Of 2014 September 15, 2014

"Designer steroids are produced by reverse engineering existing illegal steroids and then slightly modifying their chemical composition so the resulting product is not on the DEA‘s list of controlled substances."
Ensuring Patient Access And Effective Drug Enforcement Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"H.R. 4709 would provide definitions in the Controlled Substances Act for the phrases “consistent with the public health and safety” and “imminent danger.” It also would require the DEA to provide registrants an opportunity to submit an action plan to correct any violations of law or regulation for which DEA is considering revoking or suspending their controlled substance."
Detention Of Daniel Chong July 29, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"Mr. President, today I come to the floor to speak about the unconscionable way in which the Drug Enforcement Administration treated Daniel Chong, a San Diego college student, back in 2012. Unfortunately, the American people still do not know all the facts. They do not know what lasting changes are being made to make sure something like this never happens again. And they do not know what is being done to hold the DEA agents involved accountable because if people are not held accountable, there are not going to be any changes made. Most of the time, for people to be held accountable, heads have to roll, and there is no evidence that is the case in this particular case. But here is what we do know. It is a story that you might expect to hear set in some Third World country but never in the United States of America. So here it is."
Executive Actions July 21, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"The President is the chief law enforcement officer in America. The FBI, DEA, Border Patrol officers, ICE officers, Attorney General all work for him, and the leaders of those organizations serve at his pleasure. He can remove them at will if they don’t carry out his policies."
