DEA Looking into Safeway’s Record Keeping

Investigation Relates to Theft of Controlled Substances

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.

First if was a 29 million dollar fine of CVS

Then there was the 1.55 million fine of a hospital

Then they were going after COSTCO

Federal budget sequestration hit the DOJ’s budget took a 1.5 billion “hit” in 2013 and 2.1 billion in 2014…

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 ?
