Reader: Is the DEA chief too stupid to know the difference between pot and hemp?

We recently posted about a call for the firing of DEA chief Michele Leonhart after she reportedly criticized President Barack Obama's views about marijuana. One reader was dumbfounded by Leonhart's apparent anger over a hemp flag briefly flying at the U.S. Capitol last July 4. Here's his take, featuring an excerpt from the article.

"But she said her lowest point in 33 years in the DEA was when she learned they'd flown a hemp flag over the Capitol on July 4."

This is someone who desperately needs a life. Does she know hemp isn't the reefer she fears?
