* DEA Raided This Woman's House After She Shopped At A Garden Store:

"They were in full attack mode, came at me guns raised, flashlights. Just like you see in the movies," Kirking said. "I had to ask them for a warrant. I said, 'Who are you,' when they came in the bedroom. Somebody said, 'DEA.'"

They watched her shop. They went through her garbage. They looked at her electric bills. They got a warrant. They raided her. Her "marijuana stash was paltry," resulting in two misdemeanor charges.

DEA's resources should be put to better use, lest they appear to be just another agency desperate to justify its existence.
