LEAP In the News - End Drug Prohibition Now

I first heard one of LEAP's speakers back in 2006 at the Lawrence Library. Backed with considerable first-hand experience, their indictment of the War on Drugs is definitive and persuasive. Legalize and regulate all drugs. This may seem like a radical idea, but after filtering through all of the propaganda and cultural taboos that push genuine solutions to the side-lines, an honest discussion of the idea reveals it makes a hell of a lot of sense. Fortunately, the debate is finally getting some major air time on the big news networks. I've cataloged some of the best clips here below. Find out why cops want to legalize drugs.





Retired Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper tells Fox News why we should legalize drugs after what he witnessed fighting on the front lines of the "war on drugs."






Retired undercover narcotics officer Jack Cole now says it is time to legalize and regulate all drugs after spending years fighting on the front lines of the "war on drugs."






Retired California Superior Court Judge James Gray says we can hurt gangs and cartels by legalizing and regulating all drugs after spending years locking people up in the "war on drugs."





Retired Marine Border Officer Terry Nelson tells Anderson Cooper why we need to legalize and regulate drugs to keep them out of the hands of our children.
