Houston's NORML Chapter Pees on the DEA in Protest

It's not likely to rank up there with the great protests of all time, but it has been documented forever.

Members of the Houston chapter of NORML gathered outside the regional offices of the Drug Enforcement Agency yesterday to protest what they say is the agency's habit of killing pets while making drug raids. (One way to stop this, NORML says, would be to decriminalize weed.)

The DEA says they have to kill animals to protect themselves, NORML's Steven Nolin says, but instead they act "like death squads of Third World countries."

So Nolin's dog relieved himself on the DEA lawn, protesters held up signs and chanted, and we expect movement on this issue very soon.
