Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Frank Wolf, R-VA
"The first American killed in Afghanistan, Mike Spann, was a CIA agent and a constituent from my congressional district. CIA, FBI, DEA agents, and State Department employees are serving side-by-side with our military in the fight against the Taliban."
Take Marijuana Out Of The Controlled Substances Act April 8, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"What we need is for the Attorney General and those who work for him at the DEA to at least move marijuana off the schedule I or the schedule II of controlled substances. This is something they can do under their own initiative."
Protecting Volunteer Firefighters And Emergency Responders Act Of 2014 April 1, 2014
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"The DEA issued a proposed rule in December 2012. Unfortunately, that took 2 years. There were some comments then about making sure the rules worked for our long-term care facilities—you can imagine, there are a lot of prescription drugs at long-term facilities—and the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. But these issues should be addressed in the final rule. It is time now to get this rule done so we have more options to easily and safely dispose of our prescription drugs."
Quiz: Who Is The “Deporter-In-Chief”? March 5, 2014
Luis Gutierrez, D-IL
"Yes, the $18 billion he spends is $3.5 billion more every year than we spend on the FBI, ATF, DEA, and Secret Service—all of them combined—in order to achieve what? Unprecedented deportations, so he gets another star."
Marijuana Legalization March 4, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"One of Project SAM’s cofounders, former Congressman Patrick Kennedy, has been outspoken in his efforts to fight the marijuana legalization movement. He has appeared on numerous television and radio shows, including ones where audiences may disagree with his views against legalization. He has bared his own struggles with addiction, offering himself up as a cautionary tale about the dangers of becoming addicted to marijuana and other substances. And he has broken with many in his party by speaking out against the President’s permissive attitude toward marijuana use and the Obama administration’s failure to enforce the Controlled Substances Act. Indeed, all former DEA Administrators, appointed by Republican and Democratic presidents alike, have joined with Project SAM and others to oppose the Obama administration’s policies in this area."
