LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) co-founder and spokesman Peter Christ speaks out against the War on Drugs and in favor of legalizing drugs.
I and others have been making identical arguments at least 15 years. I’m a little aggravated that it’s taken truth so long to penetrate into the the body politic, but I’m delighted to see that these ideas are becoming more “mainstream”.
Former police captain Christ absolutely understands and explains the logic and necessity for ending the War on Drugs. Apparently, Mr. Christ was hired as a cop before police departments started to restrict law enforcement employment to those with below average IQs. I’m almost amazed to hear a (former) cop speaking intelligently against the War on Drugs. There are some good guys within (or formerly within) law enforcement.
