DEA opens paraphernalia museum

The DEA has opened a museum in Virginia full of seized paraphernalia and other drug-culture implements, from the bongs and rollies of the modern puffer, to the opium pipes and opium-laced drinks of the turn of the century.
The museum glorifies the DEA mission to keep drugs out of the hands of those who might enjoy them, explaining gleefully how agents in the 1930’s were issued with “a badge, a Thompson submachine gun and a pair of hand grenades.”
