The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) celebrated its 45th anniversary this month—and two U.S. senators thought it prudent to honor the federal agency with a congressional resolution, despite the fact that the war on drugs has not been won by any metric. Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) filed the measure on Wednesday, calling on their colleagues to formally recognize the DEA’s accomplishments throughout its history. The DEA seized more than 3,200,000 kilograms of marijuana in the past 10 years, the resolution states. For that and other reasons, the senators resolved to “give heartfelt thanks to all the men and women of the [DEA] for their past and continued efforts to protect the people of the United States from the dangers of drug abuse.” In the years since the agency’s inception in July 1973, a majority of states and D.C. have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes and the percentage of Americans reporting use of marijuana over the past month has steadily risen, reaching 8.3 percent in 2015.
