DEA weighs contracting out hauling of seized marijuana

Any volunteers?

DEA weighs contracting out hauling of seized marijuana
August 18, 2005 - azstarnet.com

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is exploring the feasibility of using private contractors to transport marijuana seized in Tucson to a disposal facility, officials said.

The agency now uses its agents and managers to supervise seized drug loads when they are taken to its Southern Arizona facilities to burn.

In an effort to reduce costs and to free up agents who are pulled from other duties to escort the drug shipments, the DEA is seeking private companies to provide the service, said national DEA spokesman William Grant.

Grant dismissed concerns that the marijuana may fall into the wrong hands, saying DEA managers will supervise each load and each load will be transported in DEA vehicles.

In addition, employees for the private company that receives the contract will be subject to a federal government background check, he said.

The notice, which was posted on the Justice Department Web site Aug. 11, states that "individuals working under this requirement shall be qualified to legally carry weapons and able to pass a DEA background investigation, as well as have experience providing security for transportation of sensitive items."

It also said the contractor must provide no less than six and as many as 10 people to provide security for the loads.

The cost of hiring a private firm to transport the drugs was not available Wednesday.

Shipments will be made between locations within Tucson and between Tucson and Nogales or Sierra Vista, the notice said.

About 400,000 to 500,000 pounds of marijuana is destroyed by the DEA each year in Tucson, said Anthony J. Coulson, assistant special agent in charge of the agency's local office. It costs about $1 a pound to destroy the marijuana.

The DEA also destroys marijuana seized by the Tucson Police Department, said Capt. David Neri, commander of the Counter Narcotics Alliance.

Some people should just hijack the shipment.

Why doesn't America sell all the confiscated pot to someplace where its legal, like Amsterdam? Afterall, its better than wasting money burning it, and they could charge dirt-cheap prices for it since they stole it from the growers to begin with.

Entrusting a private firm to safeguard a high dollar crop like weed? Oh yeah, I can see this working out well!  :rolleyes:

That would be tantamount to admitting publicly that pot has legitimate uses...

I hope they try it
