Bruce Mirken of the Marijuana Policy Project sends the photo below. It’s from a series of L.A. Times photos from a federal raid on a medical marijuana clinic in California. I wouldn’t draw too many conclusions from it. But it is a little disconcerting.

MORE: I’m not implying Blackwater is doing actual federal drug policing in the U.S. (though they’re doing plenty of drug war mercenary work overseas). As far as I know, that wouldn’t be legal. But given what the group is doing overseas, I’m not sure I’m comfortable with them training drug agents for work here at home, either.

UPDATE: Well now that’s interesting. The L.A. Times has pulled the photo from its website.

    James, what kind of fool takes a bullet to defend an abstract?

    To all of you who think there is no militia left.. .dont ever forget about your states national guard. we are the militia. we are the minutemen of yesterday. The DIRECT descendents. Citizen Soldiers with families and lives other than the military. We are brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and so on who risk our lives to keep our family and freinds safe. Dont be fooled it is not for the country or government but for our families. Blackwater is filling in holes so good men and women can come home and see there children laugh or their spouse cry in joy. You put way to high a value on your own skin that you dont stop to think about the hard work and dedication all of these people have endured. Marijuana is looked down upon because it causes a lack of judgement. Just like getting drunk. How much do you want to bet that not everyone who was getting weed at that location needed it. how do you know it just wasnt a front for drugs like lcd or heroine. maybe that raid just saved a baby still inside of her crack head mother. Stop and really step back before you say anything and if you cant do that than dont speak at all. Good day
