|IS TAINTED ABC ENFORCEMENT DIRECTOR BOYCE HAMLET THE RIGHT CHOICE TO HEAD ABC ENFORCEMENT?|
DFA mouthpiece Jake Bleed told reporters that ABC Enforcement will hire six new agents to perform inspections and one lawyer to specialize in medical marijuana issues.

The state is also planning to procure a "seed to sale" tracking system to aid law enforcement in keeping medical marijuana from being illegally diverted.
ABC Enforcement cannot keep up with who has an active alcoholic beverage permit (see this post) and thinking that they can track medical weed is simply preposterous.
With the additional burden and responsibility tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet will have with six additional employees, we wonder if he will receive another sizeable increase in salary as he did just three months after being appointed to the position (see this post about the $8k raise he received). A position that he holds none of the required qualifications that are required for the position.
Tainted ABC Enforcement Director's continued employment has been questioned by many individuals, including Pulaski County Circuit Court Judge Mackie Pierce (see this post).
Hamlet is the subject of a pending illegal exaction lawsuit seeking his dismissal and reimbursement of all funds paid to him by DFA/ABC and it comes at a critical time for the ABC.
