Data Quality Act Complaint Filed Against Drug Czar

The Marijuana Policy Project has filed a formal request for correction of erroneous information distributed by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, pursuant to the law commonly referred to as the Data Quality Act. The petition seeks correction of false information contained in ONDCP’s 2008 Marijuana Sourcebook, released in July.

The petition, filed late Thursday afternoon pursuant to Pub. L. 106-554, amending Paperwork Reduction Act, 44 U.S.C. §§ 3501 et seq., focuses on the Sourcebook’s title, “Marijuana: The Greatest Cause of Illegal Drug Abuse,” a claim that is not supported by scientific data, including the data in the Sourcebook — and is actually contradicted by some of its contents, as well as by other ONDCP materials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They lied to us about Saddam's nukes. I guess the safe assumption is that they lied about everything else!
