Several hours after Obama’s drug czar told a room filled with Democratic power brokers at the Center for American Progress that the “war on drugs” was over, 23-year-old Daniel Chong sat down with NBC San Diego to recount the five days he spent handcuffed in a DEA holding cell without food or water after he was arrested at a "4/20 party." During that period, Chong, a student at UC San Diego, was forced to drink his own urine because his cries for help, for water, and for food went ignored, or perhaps unheard, by DEA agents. By the third day, Chong said he was hallucinating. He tried to kill himself by breaking the lens of his glasses, cutting his wrists, and then swallowing the shards.
Chong said he lost roughly 15 pounds during the time he was alone. His lawyer confirmed that Chong ingested a powdery substance found inside the cell. Later testing revealed the substance was methamphetamine.

A 420 party? That doesn't sound like a "hard drugs" party.
So the DEA feels doing this to someone is far better than what 420 parties are doing to someone? This is the treatment they inflict on someone making a free will choice to do with their body what they want? Considering today's culture, it's hard for a 23yr old to know better, but this is domestic terrorism at it's finest.
Chong and eight others were arrested at a party where DEA agents seized "18,000 ecstasy pills, marijuana, hallucinogenic mushrooms, a Russian rifle, two handguns and thousands of rounds of ammunition."

Well whats worse, he was supposed to be released and instead... the official story said they "forgot he was in the cell"
What would have happened if he wasn't an asian kid but a black kid?
