NAAVC’s DEA Lawsuit



The NAAVC together with the Arizona Yagé Assembly has sued the DEA in order to bring the DEA into compliance with federal law.  Two weeks after the filing of that lawsuit in May of 2020, the DEA raided the home of Clay Villanueva, the director of a modest visionary church based in Phoenix, Arizona.  Clay Villanueva also happens to sit on the three-person board for the NAAVC.  Following is the story of NAAVC’s ongoing legal battle with an agency refusing to bow to Supreme Court mandate.
