Lecture on the war on drugs set for Thursday

NILES

Patrick Nightingale, a former prosecutor and current member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, will talk about the war on drugs at a 7 p.m. Thursday at Perkins Restaurant, 1953 Niles-Cortland Road.

LEAP is an international organization of criminal justice professionals who believe current drug policies are ineffective. LEAP seeks a tight system of legalized regulation of drugs, which it says will “cripple the violent cartels and street dealers who control the current illegal market.”

When it comes to marijuana, the federal government has been hampered by decades of group think. It has insulated its core decision-makers with "yes men" until now they genuinely believe that the prohibition causes more good than harm. Unfortunately for all of us, this just isn't true.

We need to put the safety of our children FIRST and tell our legislators to legalize marijuana like beer and wine at the federal level.
