Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

Here's a nice article describing the US organisation, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), and its efforts to persuade more conservative parts of the US that prohibition is a failure. The story focusses on Lt Jack Cole, head of LEAP and speaker at a recent Santa Monica city council meeting to discuss an initiative to make adult cannabis use the "lowest priority" for the police.

LEAP is made up of current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies - and calling for legal regulation of drug markets. The UK's LEAP co-ordinator is Eddie Ellison, former head of the Met drugs Squad and now a Patron of Transform.
