Oregon sued the federal government, rejecting a DEA demand for information about a physician the DEA suspected of distributing illegal drugs. The Oregon Prescription Drug Monitoring Program sued the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Department of Justice, in Federal Court.

In January, DEA officials served a subpoena on the plaintiff, a state agency. The subpoena requested a physician profile on prescriptions written by a certain doctor between June 2011 and January 2012.

Oregon said it refused to comply with the subpoena because it would violate state law. The state said it has its own prescription drug monitoring and reporting system, and told the feds, in effect, to butt out.

I wonder if the prescriptions were for medical marijuana, which is legal in OR but subject to a federal vendetta.
