Re: “America's senseless War on Drugs is a war on black and Latino men

I am the co-founder and Board chair of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (www.LEAP.cc). I am also a retired detective lieutenant—26 years with the New Jersey State Police and 14 in their Narcotic Bureau, mostly undercover. I bear witness to the abject failure of the U.S. war on drugs and to the horrors produced by this self-perpetuating, constantly expanding policy disaster.

Mr. Ravenel has eloquently expressed facts that compel LEAP’s 80,000 police, judges, prosecutors, and supporters in 86 countries to subscribe to ending the drug war and treating drug abuse as a health problem rather than a crime problem. In order to reduce death, disease, crime, and addiction, as well as the institutionalized racism that infects US law enforcement, we must legalize and regulate all drugs. Legalization is the only act that will remove drugs from the control of international crime syndicates and US street gangs, thereby ending the violence. Regulating those drugs will end overdose deaths, prevent half of all potential cases of AIDS and Hepatitis C, and preclude teenagers’ current easy access to the drugs now considered illicit.

LEAP has a speakers bureau of 150+ current and former drug warriors who will present to any group interested in learning the true facts about our destructive policy of a drug war, and how to end it. The speakers hold these discussions without charge and LEAP has a credibility that convinces about 80% of our audience no matter where we talk.
