    Correction: $1.6 billion not $1.2 million- That’s $65,000/year x25,000 people = $1,625,000,000/ year for non violent drug? criminals. Thank you for speaking up. How can we have prisons for profit but we can’t have schools for profit? The money seized in drug busts would be well spent educating the public on why we must vote to end drug prohibition.

    It comes down to control for the federal government and money for the large corporations that? have products that would be affected by the legalization of marijuana. That is the simplest form you can break it down into.

  • toosweet241 says:

    it’s a shame how you say myth making you believe you use your own mind for a chance your whole race as a nation is based on myths start by looking? at yourself first and you will find the answer to your lies

  • lsk464 says:

    OK, so overall I like what these guys had to say but i’m pissed? that this will never be shown on the MSM and that it has taken this long for it to be shown at all. This truth has been know for decades.

  • lsk464 says:

    amazing the wake? up these 2 ex-cops are now willing to talk about but I’m sure they were on board with the war on drugs while they were on active duty

  • lsk464 says:

    so it took you 30 years on the force to figure this shit out. if so you suck as law enforcer. now you are willing? to talk because you are retired, are all LEAP representatives only the retired officers? Is it illegal for active duty officers to stand up for the failed war on drugs?

    Awesome interviews. Lease share this with? all of the older folks you know who are still supporting the ridiculous War on Drugs.

  • Itsmeeman1 says:

    In the USA it’s 5 years for smoking pot. More if trafficking.
    In some Oriental countries it’s beheading.
    In? the UK… it was never a crime to smoke it but a fine for trafficking or 6 months in an open prison.
    It’s not a war on drugs, it’s a war on your personal life-style choice, but mostly, it’s about who controls the money from it.
    UK ran the Opium trade. The USA now runs the heroin and cocaine trade. Pharma/paper/oil/alcohol/tobacco/cotton industries run the suppression of the cannabis trade.

    All the government’s done with this “war on drugs” is change who the dope dealers and hustlers are. The new dope dealers? get TV commercials ….And the new hustlers wear a badge and carry a clipboard.
