Abstract:

"Meet a group of maverick cops - and former cops - who have put in decades fighting the war on drugs. They may be libertarians, Republicans, socialists or evangelical Christians, but they all believe strongly that drug prohibition is a terrible mistake and that all illicit drugs should be in the hands of government, not under the control of criminals. John Gayder, a currently employed constable with nearly 20 years experience, is our guide to the world of pro-legalization cops. Among this group is the legendary Frank Serpico, the man who blew the whistle on corruption in the New York Police Department, and who was shot in the face for his efforts. Then there's retired police captain Peter Christ, who spent 20 years enforcing drug laws before co-founding the group LEAP: Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. These are only a couple of the men who tell us their incredible stories. Watch Damage Done: The Drug War Odyssey and you'll be compelled to ask yourself: Is the war on drugs doing more damage than the drugs themselves?"--NFB.
