Dear Mr. Lincicum,

This e-mail is in reference to your Freedom of Information/Privacy Act (FOI/PA) request dated February 19, 2013, received by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Freedom of Information/Privacy Act Unit (SARF), seeking access to information regarding the above subject.

We are in receipt of your recent inquiry dated April 4, 2013 regarding the status of your pending Freedom of Information/Privacy Act request.

Due to the large number of requests received by DEA for disclosure of records pursuant to the Acts, and due to the limited resources available to process such requests, DEA has adopted a "first-in, first-out" practice of processing all incoming requests. This policy complies with the decision in Open America v. Watergate Special Prosecution Force, 547 F.2d 605, (D.C. Cir. 1976), citing 5 U.S.C. 552 (a)(6)(C) and is applied consistently by DEA.

Your request has been placed in chronological order based on the date of receipt and it will be handled as expeditiously as possible. Your patience in this matter is appreciated. If you have any questions regarding your request, please contact the Customer Service Hotline on (202)307-7596 or forward your correspondence to the following address:
