From the article:

The Drug Enforcement Administration is looking into Safeway Inc. SWY +0.37% ‘s record keeping related to the theft of controlled substances, the supermarket chain disclosed Tuesday.

Safeway, which has agreed to be bought by a group led by private-equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LLC, said in a regulatory filing that it received a subpoena from the DEA and is cooperating in the investigation.

Federal budget sequestration hit the DOJ’s budget took a 1.5 billion “hit” in 2013 and 2.1 billion in 2014… http://www.justice.gov/usao/sd/pressreleases/SF2013-09-27-OpEdSequestration.html

the DEA can keep all the fines it imposes for operational purposes.. so all this increased fining of pharmacies … serves what purpose other than self-preservation of the DEA and the war on drugs and the people that it employs ?
