Meet our guest, Larry Talley, of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition!

Larry S. Talley served in the United States Navy from 1987-2007 as an intelligence specialist and was stationed at Naval Special Warfare Unit Eight in the Republic of Panama from 1991-1996. While stationed in Panama, Larry deployed frequently to various locations in Central and South America in support of counterdrug operations, where he formulated and implemented eradication strategy in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Agency and with many countries in the region.

About LEAP: Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP http://www.leap.cc/cms/index.php) is made up of current and former members of law enforcement who believe the existing drug policies have failed in their intended goals of addressing the problems of crime, drug abuse, addiction, juvenile drug use, stopping the flow of illegal drugs into this country and the internal sale and use of illegal drugs. By fighting a war on drugs the government has increased the problems of society and made them far worse.

We’ll have materials from LEAP and from the clergy of the Interfaith Drug Policy Initiative  Questions? Comments? Call Denise or Ken at 575-430-5704 or
