This is what we need more of! Law enforcement to shed light on this phony “drug war”. Very commendable, retired police Capt. Peter Christ! He wants drugs legalized and gives a wonderful break down of why and how the drug war really doesn’t work.
(UPWORTHY) Retired police Capt. Peter Christ is about to make more sense about the War on Drugs than anyone you’ve ever heard in the past. His basic premise is that we need to legalize drugs, but if you’re skeptical, just give him a few minutes to convince you. Highlights include a very honest answer to a commonly asked drug question at 0:54, the easiest question to answer about the War on Drugs at 4:48, the complete destruction of the biggest argument anti-drug advocates use at 7:23, using the Bible to prove the ineffectiveness of prohibition at 13:55, and a rapid-fire debunking of several myths all in one breath at 14:20. If you have to leave right now, just skip to 5:58 for the thesis statement in a single sentence.
Many of the chronically ill in this country would benefit from the use of medical marijuana. I know first hand, its healing powers. The drug war, like all of the other unconstitutional laws, is outdated and inaccurate on its categorization of marijuana.
