TIME TO END FAILED WAR ON DRUGS:Published LTE in the Baltimore Sun: August 3, 2011


Speaking as a retired police detective and member of LEAP ( Law Enforcement Against Prohibition ), I heartily concur with the NAACP that it is past time to terminate our failed war on drugs also known as the war on people — mostly of color ( “The NAACP is calling for an end to the drug war; what about you?” July 31 ).  My profession, which is shrinking all over America, must return to its true mission of public safety.

If you have a drug problem, see an addiction clinic.
