PROCEDURAL AND DECEPTIVE BACKGROUND
DEA Mission Statement
The mission of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is to enforce the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States and bring to the criminal and civil justice system of the United States, or any other competent jurisdiction, those organizations and principal members of organizations, involved in the growing, manufacture, or distribution of controlled substances appearing in or destined for illicit traffic in the United States; and to recommend and support non-enforcement programs aimed at reducing the availability of illicit controlled substances on the domestic and international markets.
According to Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), The federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has existed for more than 40 years, but little attention has been given to the role the agency has played in fueling mass incarceration, racial disparities, and other drug war problems.
Congress has rarely scrutinized the agency, its actions, or its budget, instead deferring to DEA Administrators on how best to deal with drug-related issues. Treating drug use as a criminal justice issue instead of a health issue, while failing to exercise oversight over one of the most powerful enforcement agencies in the world, has led to disaster.
The DEA origins are based on putting arrogant negroes physicians, dentists, pharmacists, like Dralves Edwards, Morris Brown, Beverly Baylor-Jackson, Joseph Webster, Clarence Verdell, Walter F. Wrenn, Norman J Clement, Ronald Myers, Kenric Stephens, and Alfred Evans in prison and causing such fear that other good placed Blacks will remain in their place. The current diversity in the medical healthcare workplace has caused the DEA to broaden its scope of targets to include women, Hispanics, and dark skin Asian professionals.
Reorganized under President Richard Nixon from the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs their mission according to Dan Baum in his interview of Nixon’s domestic policy director and Watergate conspirator John Ehrlichman was direct:
“You want to know what this was all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. Do you understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course, we did.”
” The DEA was established in 1973 ostensibly to consolidate drug enforcement activities into a “superagency” that would bring together federal drug enforcement resources. In the last 50 years, it’s been a tremendous waste of resources and left a wake of devastation in the United States and abroad.”
Nixon’s invention of the war on drugs as a political tool was cynical, but every president since — Democrat and Republican alike — has found it equally useful for one reason or another. Meanwhile, the growing cost of the drug war is now impossible to ignore: billions of dollars wasted, bloodshed in Latin America and on the streets of our cities, and millions of lives destroyed by draconian punishment that doesn’t end at the prison gate; one of every eight black men have been disenfranchised because of a felony conviction.
DEA MISSION STATEMENT
In carrying out its mission as the agency responsible for enforcing the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States, the DEA’s primary responsibilities include:
- Investigation and preparation for the prosecution of major violators of controlled substance laws operating at interstate and international levels.
- Investigation and preparation for prosecution of criminals and drug gangs who perpetrate violence in our communities and terrorize citizens through fear and intimidation.
- Management of a national drug intelligence program in cooperation with federal, state, local, and foreign officials to collect, analyze, and disseminate strategic and operational drug intelligence information.
- Seizure and forfeiture of assets derived from, traceable to, or intended to be used for illicit drug trafficking.
HOWEVER WAR ON YOUR DOCTORS
The DEA has waged misinformation to persuade the public that these medications are dangerous drugs whose dosages are “RED FLAGS,” indicating abuse and trafficking, contributing to the so-called opioid crisis in America.
These agents lacking in both knowledge and understanding of Opioid Pain receptors come armed with “BADGES, GUNS AND PROFOUND STUPIDITY.” They impose their will on the medical profession (nurses, pharmacists, physicians, dentists, especially drug wholesalers
1. Tactics of no-knock raids and arrest,
3. Threats of prison time
4. Forced Tappering of Narcotic medication used to treat chronic disease states
5. Economics of Employment: Judges, Bail Bondsman, Barbwire and Prisons
DEA MISSION STATEMENT
- Coordination and cooperation with federal, state, and local agencies, and with foreign governments, in programs designed to reduce the availability of illicit abuse-type drugs on the United States market through nonenforcement methods such as crop eradication, crop substitution, and training of foreign officials.
- Responsibility, under the policy guidance of the Secretary of State and U.S. Ambassadors, for all programs associated with drug law enforcement counterparts in foreign countries.
- Liaison with the United Nations, Interpol, and other organizations on matters relating to international drug control programs.
HOWEVER, IN AFGHANISTAN POPPY PRODUCTION AND DEA MISMANAGEMENT OF $8.6 BILLION RESULTED IN THE OPIOID CRISIS
“U.S. taxpayers spent $8.6 billion on eradication, counter-narcotics, and “alternative” economic development campaigns, but opium production in Afghanistan soared during most of the U.S. occupation. Opium production increased by 37 percent between 2019 and 2020 alone, and the area under cultivation was one of the largest ever recorded, according to the United Nations. Like the global drug war, experts say the drug war in Afghanistan only made heroin and opium more lucrative for warlords and traffickers — including the Taliban.”
So why have both the US House of Representatives and the Senate failed to give Oversight over the Billions of dollars wasted and cannot be accounted for by the DEA?
Most importantly the DOJ-DEA along with failed United States government’s effort to suppress opium production in Afghanistan has resulted in the massive output of illicit opioids such as heroin in the world market. The DEA mismanaged 8.6 billion US Dollars and not only failed to eradicate poppy production but in nearly 20 years of US occupation, poppy production increased in Afghanistan from 33k hectors to 328k hectors. 95% of the opium was converted into heroin and 80% of this illegal product was sent to our allies in Europe all under the failure of the DEA not the American Medical Association, National Dental Association, or Pronto Pharmacy LLC of Tampa Florida (see Special Inspector General Afghanistan Reconstruction, John Sopko
SPECIAL INSPECTOR GENERAL FOR AFGHANISTAN RECONSTRUCTION SHOWS DEA IGNORED AND PARTICIPATED AND IS THE MAIN CULPRIT IN ILLICIT OPIUM PRODUCTION
The US support helped Afghan counterdrug units to develop promising capacity and become trusted partners. However, these units did not have a strategic impact on the drug trade due to insecurity, corruption and poor capacity within the criminal justice system, and lack of high-level support from the Afghan government.
According to the SIGARS report:
“Increased interdiction operations later proved unsustainable because they had depended on the temporary influx of troops. Specialized Afghan counter-drug units developed promising capacity, but were hindered by corruption within the larger judicial system and lack of high-level support from the Afghan government.”
The Afghan National Interdiction Unit, Technical Investigative Unit, and Sensitive Investigative Unit are regarded as some of the most trustworthy, proficient police units in the country. However, these units have not yielded large numbers of high-value target arrests or, according to recent U.S. military estimates, significantly reduced insurgency funding from the drug trade. The work of these units was repeatedly stymied by pervasive political interference and corruption in the police and judicial system as a whole.
Similarly, while the Counter Narcotics Justice Center was considered the least corrupt judicial entity in Afghanistan, political influence sometimes prevented convictions of senior drug traffickers and, if convictions were secured, even aided in their release. Afghan counter-drug units were also, at times, undercut by the conflicting relationships and approaches U.S. Agencies took toward certain high-value targets.
DEA MISSION STATEMENT
- Enforcement of the provisions of the Controlled Substances Act as they pertain to the manufacture, distribution, and dispensing of legally produced controlled substances.
- Coordination and cooperation with federal, state and local law enforcement officials on mutual drug enforcement efforts and enhancement of such efforts through exploitation of potential interstate and international investigations beyond local or limited federal jurisdictions and resources.
The ARCOS is used as an enforcement tool
ARCOS accumulates these transactions which are then summarized into reports, which give investigators in Federal and state government agencies information that can be used to identify the diversion of controlled substances into illicit channels of distribution. “Information on drug distribution is used throughout the United States (U.S.). by U.S. Attorneys and DEA investigators to strengthen criminal cases in the courts.” Through their word usage and practice ” DEA uses statistical analyzation to review to determine and identify the diversion of controlled substances into illicit channels of distribution.”
Leo Beletsky of Northeastern School of Law calls for the government crackdown on prescribers getting low-hanging fruit. “The DEA measures success based on the number of arrests and prosecutions. Doctors are minor players. 263 physicians were convicted by the DEA on charges between 2003-and 2017, and over 3000 were forced to surrender their licenses. Data mining billing records and prescription databases have become the hunting ground. The DOJ has partnered with insurance companies to share data.”
They create their targets. Who is the biggest prescriber in a region, state, and nationwide? They are investigated. Who does the most procedures? They use ‘flags’ like distance traveled forgetting that by disincentivizing and terrorizing prescribers there is no one left to prescribe, and patients must travel farther for the same services. The flags created during the pill mill era are now self-perpetuating. If you mine data enough you might find something and law enforcement can access data without individualized suspicion, probable cause, or any judicial review.
Two doctors recently indicted who have run a pain clinic for decades were under investigation for four years. One was indicted over two prescriptions for a moderate number of opioids. “Numbers alone can’t determine whether a crime has been committed: The ‘normal’ amount of opioid prescribing for a physician treating pain or addiction will inevitably be much higher than the average for all doctors or the typical amount in most other specialties.”
What the DEA is doing is applying probability mathematics. Probability is a mathematical tool used to study randomness. It deals with the chance of an event occurring. Through this agency’s application of probability statistical mathematics, the DEA uses its ARCOS as an instigation tool to identify the diversion of controlled substances into illicit channels of distribution.
What this federal agency is doing is monitoring, “the point of sales from the point of manufacture through commercial distribution channels to point of sale or distribution at the dispensing/retail level – hospitals, retail pharmacies, practitioners, mid-level practitioners, and teaching institutions.” In essence, this agency is doing is monitoring and prosecuting medical professionals for performing their licensed medical fiduciary responsibilities to patients. The trouble with probability mathematics is if a doctor is good and performs exemplary service that medical professional would be targeted despite his or her professional services.
For example, with the DEA ARCOS system, when a doctor or pharmacist orders a class 2 medication, the DEA knows the exact number of the medication ordered. With the DEA ARCOS system, the agency knows when the doctor’s prescription and who by name receives the prescription. The agency knows when the pharmacist filled the prescription and by name who received the amount and type of class 2 medications.
It has been seen that this agency applies geographic enforcement tactics, to identify the diversion of controlled substances and illicit channels of distribution using probability and statistics.
When we examine the charges placed against medical professionals, we can see the application of the ARCOS system when the agency write within their affidavit “C.F.R. § 1306.04(a) (emphasis added). A pharmacist violates this provision only if the pharmacist “knowingly fill[s]” a “purported” prescription—i.e., a prescription that was not written, “in the usual course of professional treatment.”
To analyze and establish probability mathematics that a licensed professional and state “mis-practicing pharmacist “knowingly fill[s]” a “purported’” prescription—i.e., a prescription that was not written, “in the usual course of professional treatment.” This statement establishes that the agents apply circumstantial analytical evidence to substantiate a violation.
By using the ARCOS system each DEA understood well in advance how their system tracks and identified each prescription and who received the medications and how much medication was provided to the patient.
In essence, the DEA is applying inferential statistics, the null hypothesis that two possibilities are the same. If a pharmacist orders 6000 class oxycodone pills, the DEA approves the reception of the medications. The DEA approves the shipment and authorizes the reception of the medication at the pharmacy. However, with their knowledge of their approval for the pharmacist to receive the medications, the DEA often calls a pharmacy ‘pill mills.’.
“Distributors report sales of Schedule, I, II, and some III opioid-based medications to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for its database, known as the Automation of Reports and Consolidated Orders System (ARCOS). From the point of manufacturing through commercial distribution to delivery to DEA- and state-registered pharmacies, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.”
It should be made clear in the DEA, that they apply its ARCOS system data analytical reports, such as reports must be provided within or attached to the investigative reports. No citizen should ever be subjected to inferential statistical investigatory tools and be subjected to governmental enforcement.
By speculation, the DEA reviews computerized data that they have previously approved and applies that information to subjugate African-American medical professionals. With the use of computerized data, they base their reasoning of criminal activity on the belief that criminal activity was occurring through the perceptions of their economic growth and not reality.
The results of their business growth triggered a criminal investigation of their accumulated “transactions which are then summarized into reports, which give investigators in Federal and state government agencies information which can be used to identify diversion of controlled substances into illicit channels of distribution.”
SELECTIVELY TARGETING BASED ON RACIAL BIAS
To use the ARCOS system as a tool to identify targets of successfully growing licensed African American medical facilities (that practice and conduct, excellent care through good, mannered customer services) as a source of diversion of controlled substances into illicit channels of distribution.
When the DEA use their computer system and develops a suspicious element that criminal activity is taking place, they then compile a multitude of charges to support their false assertion that the medical facility is a source of diversion of controlled substances into illicit channels of distribution. All this is done despite the professionalism and legal standards each facility conducts.
Thus the acts and actions of the DEA are generally baseless. This agency’s law enforcement actions violate the basics elements of investigatory practices. For example, statting in their warrant(s),
“The Government obtained the immediate suspension and sought revocation based on allegations that Petitioner had repeatedly filled prescriptions for controlled substances despite obvious red flags of drug abuse and diversion in violation of federal and state law and had engaged in the manufacture of controlled substances without the appropriate DEA registration. Id. at 64,714”.
The DEA has not articulated the facts to support an investigation to establish probable cause and or reasonable suspicion. When a government agency seeks to remove and undermine the pharmaceutical business based on an allegation, violates the very principles of the 4th amendment.
The term Red Flag has no statutory meaning in the areas of pharmaceutical and or within the medical profession.
In determining the public interest, the DEA Administrator considers evidence bearing on five statutory factors:
(1)The recommendation of the appropriate state licensing board or professional disciplinary authority.
(2)The applicant’s experience in dispensing, or conducting research concerning controlled substances.
(3)The applicant’s conviction record under Federal or State laws relating to the manufacture, distribution, or dispensing of controlled substances.
(4)Compliance with applicable State, Federal, or local laws relating to controlled substances.
(5)Such other conduct may threaten public health and safety.
For any person or persons to violate the criminal statute, the officer must of a crime to develop probable cause. For a law enforcement agency to operate both as criminal justice and administrative enforcement agency, gives the DEA enormous and unrestrictive powers of authority. The Constitution or laws of the United States. (18 U.S.C. §§ 241, 242). “Under color of law” means that the person doing the act is using power is given to him or her by a governmental agency (local, State, or Federal).
The DEA has failed Satisfy the constitutional Standards of the law enforcement agency.
The DEA has full knowledge of the Court and rarely grants summary reversal. No court would or should allow false and fabricated information to support unwarranted allegations. Such allowance of the DEA’s information clearly shows the corrupted attempt and coordinated efforts to subjugate the criminal justice system.

THE DEA IS AN AGENCY WITH A MISSION OF WRONGDOING
This single-focused act by the DEA and its court system should be feared by every American. The constitution was not intended to be used to identify and attack particular groups of people. The DEA and its court system have created an unrestricted bias wherein this organization has yielded the power to act as they please.
It should be feared that any law enforcement agency within the United States of America could apply draconian tactics to support and justify and ignore their wrongful law enforcement efforts.
Doctors/Pharmacist are just a ‘sitting duck’ for these federal prosecutors who raid medical offices and unlike the career drug pusher on the streets who get caught and charged with one or two counts, federal prosecutors pile up count after count because doctors/pharmacists are required to keep records and those records are used against them in these out of control prosecutions against dispensing FDA approved Narcotic Analgesic Medication. This case addresses an impermissible invasion of the federal government into state affairs where the practice of medicine is solely regulated by state medical boards.
The DOJ-DEA has used the cumbersome and costly process of litigation of healthcare providers (Pharmacist, Dentist Physicians) as the methodology of shielding their abuses and corruption. The DEA-DOJ knows the cost of seeking justice has been prohibitive and by the time the practitioners reach the appeals level they have spent well over $200k plus in legal fees.
However what DOJ-DEA never counted upon was that a small group of diverse pharmacists, physicians, researchers, and dentists, would convert their training in medical/dental science to become journalists and their own lawyers exposing the mission of deception and the failure of the DEA.
