This Former Cop Had a Change of Heart, Now He’s DEMOLISHING the “War on Drugs” on National Television

The “War on Drugs” is a program invented by the US Government as a means by which to gather American citizens from certain communities and put them to work in private prisons, essentially creating a slave labor force.

The prison companies see massive profits, more jobs are created for cops, prosecutors, judges, and prison guards, and investors who buy shares in the prison companies make fortunes.

All at the expense of real human beings who are trapped in cages, torn from their families and isolated in a place where violence and rape are the norm.

Most of these human beings were non-violent before they were crushed in the gears of the War on Drugs.

Smoking marijuana for instance (or even selling it to consenting adults) is about as non-violent as one can get.

It has resulted in zero deaths, far less than legal drugs like Tylenol, caffeine, and sugar.


Most people who smoke marijuana can get away with it.

But the War on Drugs targets people of low education and low income — segments of society deemed “undesirable” by the political class — and ensures that they are in prison or felonized.

These are people, in many cases, who can barely read, and who aren’t aware of the laws.

Even if they don’t smoke marijuana, it is often planted on them by dirty cops who want to increase their arrest quotas and keep the prisons filled at capacity.

Most of the people taken to the prisons are black males.

And that is just one small slice of the problem.

Many of them are also felonized or under some other form of federal control even if they’re not in prison, which ruins their chances of finding education or employment.

The War on Drugs also creates violence by forcing dealers into red markets (markets in which violence is necessary) to handle bad transactions, engage in theft, and avoid being caught.

Just as the prohibition created violence around the sale of alcohol, the War on Drugs creates violence for marijuana.

When the prohibition ended, alcohol was sold and consumed without the need for drive-by shootings and gang warfare.

The same would happen if the War on Drugs were ended.

Most cops are deeply in favor of the War on Drugs, however, because without it they would lose their jobs. The same goes for prosecutors, judges, and prison staff.

Cops who keep their jobs would have to focus on preventing actual violent crime instead of the easy arrests of peaceful marijuana smokers.

So it might come as a surprise to see a cop — a former Police Captain at that — speaking out logically and vociferously against the War on Drugs, and warning of its dangers.

His name is Peter Christ, the co-founder of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition.
