Law enforcement organization opposes War on Drugs


It’s called LEAP: Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. With a growing army of law enforcement and criminal justice personnel who actually support legalizing drugs like marijuana, this public policy initiative is starting to gain traction.

On its website, LEAP describes itself as “current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies.”

Legalize marijuana. Now. It’ll cripple the drug cartels and end massive amounts of corruption and money laundering on both sides of the border. It’s heartening to see law enforcement officials get behind this.

Watch who opposes legalization. Then ask yourself, do they benefit financially from marijuana being illegal? Sure, some see it as a moral issue and that’s fine. But others, like corrupt politicians, dirty hedge funds, those laundering money and the banks that take it, all have a major vested interest in keeping drugs illegal.

  • Finally, some cops are waking up to the fact that the war on drugs is a joke. This is good news.

    Isn’t it ironic that those who oppose legalization are most often those who promote free market capitalism? Sure, the market can fix anything– but when it comes to drugs, they somehow believe the rules of economics do not apply. (There are those, too, who know very well that the rules of economics apply– they’re profiting mightily from the controlled supply.)
