The DEA arrested Boeing employees, and it was not just a handful, but three dozen of them. After securing a $35 billion government contract, Boeing finds out that multiple employees are getting buzzed. Maybe the government should be going after those fulfilling government contracts as opposed to welfare applicants for the time being for drug testing.
The arrestees in question were a non-employee, and the rest were current employees, all from 23 to 65 years of age. The feds are saying that each defendant, "either sold a controlled substance to an FBI cooperator or bought what was believed to be a controlled substance from the cooperator but which was, in fact, a placebo," reports Wonkette.
The DEA arrests Boeing employees for more than just minor possession of a joint. These folks were selling and buying heavy prescription drugs, with significant potential side effects that could heavily impact their ability to get the job done. Pretty scary to think that those who may be working on a jet plane could be flying high themselves.
"The drugs being distributed by these defendants include but are not limited to fentanyl (Actiq), oxycodone (Oxycontin), alprazolam (Xanax) and buprenorphine (Suboxone)," reports the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
It is not cool for someone on welfare using taxpayer money to buy drugs, but it is equally, or moreso, not cool for someone building military jets to be stoned either.
