Ending the Drug War w/ Keith King
Keith King joins us on Black Talk Radio News again to discuss the latest news pertaining to the Drug War/Policy. Keith is a retired United States Coast Guard Commander and resides in Kailua-Kona, HI.
He was in law enforcement for 37 years and got his start before the war on drugs began. He served in the United States Coast Guard for 24 years in various capacities including as a watch officer in Miami and at Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, DC, retiring as commander.
He also provided 13 years of service to the state of Hawaii, both in the judiciary and the enforcement branch of the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Like other members of LEAP, Keith says, “What we are doing is not working,” and “We’ve literally handed over control of the drug trade to cartels and organized crime".
