DEA Destroys Far Fewer Marijuana Plants in Past Two Years Than it Did In 2010

The DEA has substantially reduced the amount of marijuana that it destroys a year, eradicating fewer plants in the past two years combined than it did in 2010.

The Huffington Post reports that the DEA destroyed about 8.3 million plants, compared to more than 10 million destroyed in both 2009 and 2010.

The DEA’s policies are forcing “drug traffickers to cultivate marijuana plants on private property, whereas in prior years, marijuana plants were typically grown on public land,” DEA officials said.

The DEA’s budget said the agency must “continuously modify its enforcement strategies to keep pace with the various adaptations and evolutionary techniques employed by trafficking organizations and other criminal enterprises.”
