Guest: Peter Christ retired as a police captain after a 20-year career enforcing drug laws. From the beginning, Peter believed "the drug war can never be won and it is doing more harm than good." After retiring in 1989, Peter began speaking out publicly against that War. Peter originated the idea of creating LEAP, a drug policy reform group of current and former members of law enforcement modeled on "Vietnam Veterans Against the War". In 2002, after four years of Peter's preparation, LEAP finally emerged as a viable international nonprofit educational organization.
