Correction Regarding The Attorney General

It has been pointed out to me that the Attorney General makes his decisions on classifying controlled substances based on recommendations provided to him by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. That means everything I've said about the Attorney General also applies to the Secretary. Not that this absolves the AG from any blame. Making a bad decision based on bad information is no excuse. If it's your responsibility to make a decision, it's also your responsibility to make sure that the information you base it on is accurate and up to date. Especially when that decision affects the lives of millions of people. So I'm not letting the AG off the hook. I'm just saying he's not the only one not doing his job.
