What is more dangerous and addictive: methamphetamines and cocaine or marijuana? Ask any rational person and they will say methamphetamines and cocaine. Ask Michael Botticelli, National Drug Control Policy deputy director, however, and expect an evasive answer. This is what happened at the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee meeting last Tuesday.
“I asked which is more dangerous and you couldn’t say and you sir, represent part of the problem,” said Rep. Earl Blumenaur (D-OR) to Botticelli. “Let me suggest, that your inability to answer me, whether tobacco or marijuana is more dangerous, again, is part of the problem.”
