Washinton Post,

Ten people were arrested yesterday after they chained themselves to a door of the U.S. Justice Department in a protest against the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Protective Service said.

Rob Kampia, executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project, said the late-morning protest at Ninth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW was in response to DEA raids in California targeting the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
