Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101

Denise Krochta

Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Legalization, Decriminalization, Marijuana, Changing Drug Policy

This week Denise talks with a member of LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) about these topics and more. What would happen if we legalized, decriminalized marijuana, all illegal drugs?
“The Drug War is clearly not fulfilling any of its goals to reduce drug use or keep us safe.”
This week’s guest is Howard Rahtz who has a dual background in drug treatment and drug interdiction, providing him first hand experience with drug enforcement policy. His career in law enforcement spanned 18 years where he rose to the rank of police captain in the Cincinnati police department. His journey in law enforcement and drug rehabilitation is an interesting parallel to the 40 years of the Drug War.
