Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case. The world is full of injustices and atrocities that governments and the voice of faith expect us to accept, though with each passing year they grow fewer and fewer, at least one would hope. I have created this blog as a space for me to rant about all things science, politics, philosophy and religion, before it’s too late and the vessel of new atheism propelled by a growing surge in secularism solves all of the world’s problems for good.

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition - I love these guys

LEAP is an awesome organisation made up of law enforcement officers who are pro legalisation and regulation of drugs. Their principles are outlined as

1. LEAP does not promote the use of drugs and is deeply concerned about the extent of drug abuse worldwide. LEAP is also deeply concerned with the destructive impact of violent drug gangs and cartels everywhere in the world. Neither problem is remedied by the current policy of drug prohibition. Indeed, drug abuse and gang violence flourish in a drug prohibition environment, just as they did during alcohol prohibition.

They're organisation is growing larger and larger every day and they're doing their best to educate everyone about the unfortunate consequences of the so called "war on drugs" and drug prohibition, alongside all of the benefits of drug legalisation and regulation. They explain how we can beat drug cartels and criminal organisations, increase safety and health surrounding drug use while decreasing the dangers, benefit our economy (we can tax the stuff) and improving the safety of communities and children, all of which would result from ending the prohibition and finally taking control.

I thoroughly recommend hitting up their page and watching a few of their videos or reading their articles to really get an idea of where they stand, and where you should stand, when it comes to drug prohibition. If you want a safer society to live in, supporting groups like LEAP and ultimately fighting against prohibition is what will get us there!
