We are frontline warriors who have experienced, executed and examined the war on drugs. We started out as true believers and faithfully enforced drug laws until our consciences would no longer allow us to stay silent about the harms brought on by that war. We bear personal witness to the destructive futility of all drug prohibitions - from caffeine, tobacco and alcohol, to current bans on drugs that were once legal. Even if well intended, such prohibitions rarely work and almost always harm the integrity of and respect for law enforcement.
America's increasing rejection of the corruption and violence that accompany prohibition is responsible for the game-changing response of the federal government to marijuana reform in Washington and Colorado. But we appreciate the concern many feel about the accelerating pace of drug policy reform. What replaces prohibition? How will we protect our young?
Our report is aimed at those who are convinced of prohibition's terrible toll but who seek safe, workable alternatives. We know what happens when we arrest people for buying and using drugs. What happens when we don't?
This report contains:
1. A straightforward way to think about drugs that will allow us to move past a prohibition-only model,
2. Real-world examples of how moving away from prohibition reduces the rates of death, disease, crime and addiction; and
3. Specifics about what our drug policies and our communities might look like After Prohibition. [Introduction]
