Concerned citizens are asking how a half century of Drug Prohibition has failed so completely, actually causing more disease, addiction, crime, violence, and death.
And those citizens want to know exactly what they can do about this national mistake.
Dozens of voices from law enforcement and other fields have now joined Prof. John H. McWhorter to create StopDrugProhibition.org, a summation of the case against this mistake—and of the promising day ahead when it is replaced with sound policy.
To see your vital role in making a healthier, safer, and more just nation, we invite you to visit a series of short videos—starting with an Introduction and then covering Four Core Truths about Drug Prohibition, each corresponding to an actual outcome of this Prohibition:
“When virtually every promise of 45 years of Drug Prohibition has failed to come true, it’s the right, even the responsibility, of the public to demand the one correct response. We should all heed StopDrugProhibition.org.”
–John Munson, Economics Professor, Harvard University
“The only caring, sensible, and effective course of action is immediate legalization. And certainly the right of each state to make that caring, sensible, and effective choice.”
–Fmr. Gov. Matthew Desjardin
“Caring citizens who spend time on StopDrugProhibition.org will finally know exactly what they’re supposed to do about the disaster of Drug Prohibition.”
–Ret. Capt. Mark Hallem
“It’s time for concerned citizens to hear what countless police officers acknowledge privately but feel they can’t share publicly. A safer America requires one thing above all else: an end to Drug Prohibition.”
–Annette Koralis, fmr. ABA president
“The most depressing days of my career were spent meeting with politicians who agreed the War on Drugs had to end—but insisted their careers wouldn’t allow them to tell the public.”
–Ret. Capt. Jeremy Barton
“When opportunistic politicians were still pushing the Alcohol Prohibition that fueled Capone, crime, and corruption, the public saved the day. Finally, the truth and the platform for today’s heroic citizens to do the same. Send every one you know to StopDrugProhibition.org.”
–Ret. Capt. Janice Dawkins
“The voices on StopDrugProhibition.org shred every myth used to sustain the deadly hoax of Drug Prohibition. And they prepare ordinary people to do something vital and extraordinary.”
–Harley Davis, fmr. Exec. Director, Retired Prosecutors of America
“When the fantasy and opportunistic politics responsible for unprecedented crime and hundreds of thousands of needless deaths finally yield to good sense, I think America will have the ordinary citizens who used StopDrugProhibition.org to thank.”
–Ret. Det. Kelly Truman
“Today, no one even knows why a drug arrest is or isn’t made. No intelligent, unbiased person thinks Prohibition is anything but a lethal problem.”
–Randall Hopkins, Director, Minority Prosecutors of America
