Since 2002, speakers for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition have led the public debate on drug policy. As current and former criminal justice professionals, LEAP speakers bring an unassailable credibility to the conversation. LEAP believes existing drug policies have failed to address the problems of crime, drug abuse, addiction and the flow of illegal drugs. This group of nearly 100,000 law enforcement professionals and concerned citizens worldwide agree that by fighting a war on drugs, governments have increased the societal problems associated with drug abuse. LEAP believes a system of regulation is less harmful, more ethical and a more effective policy than prohibition.
