I’m very encouraged to be meeting up with Neill Franklin, the executive director of
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), at the upcoming Bi-National Encounter this weekend in Mexico City, which is being held by Movimiento por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad (MPJD).
MPJD is a movement for peace with justice and dignity begun by the well-known Mexican author, poet, and writer, soon after his son was murdered because of the violence here in Mexico.
LEAP is an organization begun by former members of US law enforcement, military, and the judicial system who have realized the prohibition of drugs, especially marijuana has created and caused more crime, violence, and deaths than do the use of drugs, which is why they are working to end the foolish and US prohibition policy and bring peace to our streets, and hope to our families, both in the US and in Mexico.
