Neil Woods - Undercover Cop Fights Drug War

Neil infiltrated Drug Gangs as an Undercover Operative in the UK for 14 years. He shares experiences posing as an addict, taking down dealers, & why he's now switched sides in this War on Drugs. He spent 23 years total in the UK police force. He is now the chair for LEAP UK, which stands for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. Neil is open about how difficult it was to come to terms with how little good he actually did for his communities by going after these drug kingpins. He is also open about how coming to this realization contributed to his PTSD. Drug addiction is quite clearly a medical and social issue, not a criminal one. We discuss why police should be free to focus on other things, and that by keeping drugs illegal we are actually perpetuating violence, theft, and intimidation in our communities. We also touch on marijuana and the potential for some other psychedelic type of substances to be used for people's benefit, as well as political corruption, fear, and speaking out publicly. There is an overwhelming amount of proof as to why this drug war is a losing battle, but it may take many more people like Neil speaking up before things change.
