Can a DEA agent make an arrest for a crime not related to drugs or the drug trade?

DEA agents are authorized to make arrests only for crimes that fall under their jurisdiction. However, a DEA agent can detain an individual for a crime unrelated to drugs or drug trafficking.

How much drug trafficking does the DEA stop or prevent?

There is no way to accurately measure how much drug trafficking the DEA prevents. However, the DEA makes more than 30,000 arrests each year and it is common for the DEA to seize more than 30,000 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 kilograms of heroin in any given year.

Does the DEA have the authority to enforce marijuana laws in states that have passed some form of legal marijuana?

Yes. Although several states have changed state laws to legalize the possession of marijuana, possession continues to be a federal crime. The DEA has the authority to enforce federal marijuana laws even in states that have legalized possession under state law.
