Peter Christ retired as a police captain after a 20-year career enforcing drug laws. From the beginning, Peter believed “the drug war can never be won and it is doing more harm than good.”

After retiring , Peter began speaking out publicly against that War. Peter then originated the idea of creating Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP,) a drug policy reform group of current and former members of law enforcement modeled on “Vietnam Veterans Against the War”.

In this video above, which was aired on WGRZ-TV in Buffalo, Peter effectively answers all questions and objections presented regarding the current war on drugs, and how legalizing drugs and ending prohibition, as we did with alcohol, would benefit law enforcement, the economy, and actually lessen drug abuse. In 15 minutes he covers more territory that would take hours elsewhere. It is well worth the watch to be educated on the basics of this issue, which few Americans know.

  “Over all, there are now more people under ‘correctional supervision’ in America–more than 6 million–than were in the Gulag Archipelago under Stalin at its height.”  New Yorker’s Adam Gopnik
