The AP said the investigations will range from counterfeit medications to trade secrets stolen by hackers.

“We’re looking at everything from health and safety to theft of trade secrets to intellectual property,” Trent R. Teyema, assistant special agent in charge of the office’s cyber branch.

Demand for the team has risen as hackers and cyberattacks become more common.

A group of former DEA chiefs is renewing a campaign to urge the Obama administration to publicly oppose marijuana-legalization ballot measures in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, the Seattle Times reports.

The group is incensed that the Justice Department has not responded to a Sept. 7 letting requesting a public denouncement of the measures, which would legalize, tax and regulate the sale of marijuana, according to the Seattle Times.

Former DEA officials said states are wrong if they think the measures will raise much-needed tax revenue.

“Quite frankly, no one is going to be reporting and paying taxes to the state if they’re committing a federal felony,” former DEA administrator Rob Bonner said.

Bonner added that the measure would increase drug dependence.

A lawyer for Mexico’s Public Ministry in Nogales told Reuters the family will see legal action against the agent or agents responsible for Rodriguez’s death.

The Border Patrol declined to comment beyond an original statement about the shooting, which said an unnamed agent opened fire after smuggling suspects “began assaulting the agents with rocks” and defied orders to stop, Reuters reported.
