DEA Seeks Private Guards To Protect Traveling Tonnage of Pot

By Stephen Peacock,

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is recruiting private security forces to load, transport and unload "multi-ton" shipments of seized marijuana en route to destruction in Arizona. It's conducting what is known as a "sources sought" inquiry to determine the availability of commercial firms that can provide on-call deployments of armed contractors to protect these bulk transports of pot.

"The work to be performed will be the loading of multi-ton quantities of marijuana at a secure site, providing protection and security enroute to the destruction facility, offloading multi-ton quantities of marijuana at the destruction facility, and providing security until all the marijuana is destroyed," the sources-sought notice said.


  • "Multi-ton quantities." How long ago has it been since we used to hear lesser amounts regularly being named?

    Tons. Tons. It boggles the mind to see an advertisement like that and realize that the interdicted amounts have increased only because the actual amounts getting through are orders of magnitude higher. And this is trumpted as being 'success'?
