"The ‘war on drugs’ puts more drugs everywhere and is at the heart of most American crises."
In James’ view, the War on Drugs not only doesn't work but is also the heart of most American crises including violent crime, property crime, gangs, guns, prisons, student dropout rates, corruption, overdose deaths, addition, disease, trade imbalance and the frequent inability of governments at every level to pay the bills. “Ironically,” James says, “the war on drugs was put in place to save our kids from drugs and make our streets safer, but ending prohibition is what will truly accomplish these goals.”
James has spent more than twenty years fighting drug prohibition as a candidate for Cook County State’s Attorney and Illinois governor in primary elections, and as an author, speaker, and attorney. He has discussed and debated drug-policy issues on television, radio and in front of hundreds of audiences, appearing alongside the former head of the DEA, presiding judges, chiefs of police, and drug advisors to the White House. He currently lives in the Chicago area.
