DEA Museum at The Drug Enforcement Administration headquarters in Arlington, Virginia


The War On Drugs On Display

In 1999 the DEA decided to put some tax dollars to work and open a museum all about themselves.

The public DEA Museum is housed in the lobby of the Drug Enforcement Administration headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. Admission is free for the public to learn all about the war on drugs, well kind of.



Entrance into the DEA Museum, "Who's affected by drugs? You are!"



Right when you walk in the door, the DEA let's you know who exactly are the suspects in the Drug War...


"You Are!"


Are you as confused as me as to why they included the poor dog?

Walking the museum you are confronted with familiar sites such as the friendly local head shop circa 1970's.



"An American Head Shop circa 1970's" at the DEA Museum


Along with their scary display's of legal American business's are the remnants of years of busting it's own citizens.

Pipes, clothing, guns and even a confiscated Hell's Angels motorcycle are on display as war trophy's of the Drug War...



Display of homemade bongs with a ISO II by D Gold


If you look close they even have a ISO II by D Gold chilling in the display case, I'm sure confiscated from some bummed stoner.

And what stoner collection would be complete without the homemade Mayo hookah!

The War on Drugs on Display continued...



Right next to a display of an ominous rusted metal door with a peep window labeled "An American Crack House circa 1980's", sits an odd addition to the displays.

A reproduction of a storefront of a State legal Medical Marijuana Dispensary...




"An American Marijuana Dispensary circa 2000's" Display at the DEA Museum



Labeled as 'SK's Herbal' "An American Marijuana Dispensary circa 2000's" the display shows a store front typical of many of the 'legal' medical marijuana dispensary's in 'Medical' States.

You are quickly reminded that these are indeed criminal enterprises serving the criminals in society according to the DEA...

As sad as it is for an American agency to attack the medical needs of its citizens to which they serve and refer to them as criminals for doing so, there is a much darker insinuation made at the museum...




9/11 display at the DEA Museum


As you walk up to some pieces of twisted metal and concrete, you realize the significance of the rubble. The display is indeed debris of the World Trade Center from the 9/11 attacks, but what are they doing in the DEA Museum?

The DEA Museum tells the public the terrorist attacks of 9/11 came from drug 'Traffickers' making this a Drug War attack...




The La Santa Muerte Skull Statue at the DEA Museum (why not slander a religious folk saint in a government building)


Of course by the exit of the museum they try to appeal one last time to your dwindling sense of logic by adding a DEA Gift Shop.

Selling everything you can think of from shirts, cups, stuffed animals and even a DEA golf bag to show the others on the course just how much of a douche you really are...



DEA Museum Gift Shop




One of the items sold in the DEA gift shop is a bumper sticker that reads "Get off the pot", funny I was thinking the same thing...

It has nothing to do with weed, but an interesting poster of a long gone time.

Have to remember the necessity for stealth back in the heavy days of the drug war. Something that looks like a vase with shitty grapes when the top plug is pulled is much better then a beautiful piece now owned by the cops. Those little Metal mushroom necklace pipes come to mind

Man that makes me wonder if you can really be convicted of possessing drug paraphernalia if the hookah is made out of a fake mayo jar.

Reminds me of the story Howard Marks told of smoking out of a water pipe made from a peanut butter jar in Jamaica.

Edit...also, in that same case with the hemostats is a type of pipe I remember, the brass one about 1 o’clock. Had a chamber in the middle that you’d fill with weed to saturate it with the resins from what you smoked. Always thought that stuff tasted like crap.
