From director Ben Abel-Bey, Drug Policy explores the growing movement for drug policy reform in the United States. A debate among 9 of the most outspoken voices influencing current drug policy today. Against the status quo are Jack Cole and Peter Christ, two retired police officers and ex-veteran drug warriors who in 2002 formed Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P.); one of the authors of the original Mandatory Minimum Sentencing Laws, Eric Sterling of the Criminal Justice Policy Foundation; Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance, and Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron.

For the status quo are John Coleman of Drug Watch International and former special agent of the DEA; Dr. Robert DuPont, the first director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the second United States Drug Czar; Robert Weiner, the former spokesman for the ONDCP; and Joseph Califano Jr., celebrated author and founder of CASA Columbia.

This is the 2nd episode of Ben Abel-Bey’s documentary series, INTERVIEW.
