Sen. Grassley tells Bush to fire the Drug Czar

Des Moines Register today

In a conference call with Iowa reporters, Grassley [R-Iowa] said: “I think the president ought to fire the drug czar.” He said that he wrote Walters calling for more action on meth and the response he received was “basically, bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo.”
Walters and the Office of National Drug Control Policy continue to place much more emphasis on fighting marijuana use, said Grassley.

Now, this doesn’t make Grassley a friend of Drug Policy Reform by any means — he’s still a hard-liner who doesn’t get how the drug war works. But it’s nice to see the falling out — Grassley thinks he’s actually fighting the drug war, while Walters knows it’s about demonizing marijuana for political and financial reasons.
