I was put on the DEA suspect list recently, I bought online a little plastic cap filler, basically a three inch by eight inch board with holes in it. I was investigated and cleared of any wrong doing, the purchase was legal and legitimate. This type of board is used by those of us who buy their herbs and the like in bulk and cap them ourselves. The benefits are, you save a lot of money, you have quality control, you can mix and match what you are using for your personal maximum benefit and you can very the size you use.
To get off the suspect list you need to be more than cleared of the reason you were flagged, it takes extra effort and know how to get you off the list by the investigator.
If you are on the Net, you are being surveilled!

Hello Rozzy: Always interesting to hear what's going on! Thanks for sharing. What I wanted to know is how you would find out if you are on any list? I'm sure there are lists of lists. I wouldn't even know the lists to check since there are so many?
Thanks for the information

do a FOIA on your name and they'll at least have to tell you if they have info on you even if they redact it to black, which they more than likely will...
you will then have proof your on the watch list, you just wont know what kind of info they have on you but at least you will know if they are watching you.

I am not sure how to check on who has you on file, I found out I was a suspect when Canadian officials come asking questions because the USDEA requested it. FOIA may be helpful but the Gov is usually not very forthcoming with anything.

Guilty until proven innocent how quaint.
