The US Senate unanimously confirmed Michele Leonhart as new DEA Administrator

On December 22, 2010, the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed Michele Leonhart as new DEA Administrator. The implications for DEA licensing of Prof. Craker are obvious and disappointing since Leonhart rejected the DEA Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) recommendation that it would be in the public interest for Prof. Craker to be licensed to grow marijuana for federally-regulated research. Prof. Craker's lawyers have until March 7, 2011 to submit a final brief to Leonhart, after she rejected our Motion to Reconsider on 12/5/10.

DEA's obstruction of medical marijuana research was not mentioned by a single Senator during her confirmation hearing and all US Senators voted in favor of her confirmation, despite efforts against her nomination by a combination of drug policy reform groups.
