Rosenberg was a colleague of FBI Director, James B. Comey, before being appointed Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Opinions on recreational drugs


He declared heroin to be a “threat to national security.” He went on to claim that he suspects drug dealers of funding terrorist organizations and insinuated that the agency had evidence of this happening, but did not present any actual evidence.[2]


"If you want me to say that marijuana’s not dangerous, I’m not going to say that because I think it is,” Rosenberg said. “Do I think it’s as dangerous as heroin? Probably not. I’m not an expert."[2] He later clarified that "heroin is clearly more dangerous than marijuana".[3]

On September 5th, 2015, when asked about marijuana, he stated "If we come up with a medical use for it, that would be wonderful. But we haven’t."[3]


On September 26, 2017, it was announced that Rosenberg, dismayed by Donald Trump's administration, was stepping down.[4][5] His resignation became effective October 1, 2017.[6]
