I've never heard of guys establishing corporations for cocaine. These guys are in plain sight and sell their stuff to gas stations and corner stores. Nobody goes to Exxon for an eight ball.
Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
According to the Palm Beach Post, in response to local authorities country-wide asking for help in battling synthetic marijuana, agents of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency agents, the Internal Revenue Service, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized nearly 5 million packets of synthetic drugs, $36 million in cash, and $6 million in assets.
More than 265 search warrants in 90 cities and in 30 states were executed in the investigation, dubbed “Operation Log Jam”.
"Together we're sending a clear message to those who would profit from the sale of these dangerous substances: you are nothing more than a drug trafficker and we will bring you to justice," said Drug Enforcement Administration administrator Michele Leonhart at a news conference in Arlington, Va.
However, Boca Raton-based attorney Thomas H. Wright blasts the DEA over Operation Log Jam, "It's akin to reefer madness of olden days."
Wright has some concerns about the DEA's operation.
"The DEA is taking the position that these guys are drug dealers. I've never heard of guys establishing corporations for cocaine. These guys are in plain sight and sell their stuff to gas stations and corner stores. Nobody goes to Exxon for an eight ball," Wright says.
