Former prosecutor Jim Doherty, of the group Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), was a guest on Wednesday's Mike Bastinelli show.

According to their website, LEAP's mission statement is:

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is an international organization of criminal justice professionals who bear personal witness to the wasteful futility and harms of our current drug policies. Our experience on the front lines of the “war on drugs” has led us to call for a repeal of prohibition and its replacement with a tight system of legalized regulation, which will effectively cripple the violent cartels and street dealers who control the current illegal market.

 

Doherty talked about his group's position and more.
