The drug war has failed. That's what Sheriff Bill Masters told a crowd of around 400 at the University of Colorado at Boulder on December 5.
Masters, Colorado's highest-ranking Libertarian official and the nation's first Libertarian sheriff, made telvision and radio appearances earlier that day and gave media interviews to the Rocky Mountain News and the Colorado Springs Gazette.
His book Drug War Addiction: Notes from the Front Lines of America’s #1 Policy Disaster was published by Accurate Press at 1.800.374.4049. Masters has served as sheriff of San Miguel County since 1979.
Masters told the audience the drug war squanders police resources and leads to police corruption. His web page is at libertybill.net.
