Members of the William and Mary Students for Sensible Drug Policy group welcome Board Member Peter Christ to their Freshman Seminar Class. The topic to be discussed: “Democracy and the Rule of Law”. As a former police officer on the front line of the drug war, Peter will bring first hand experience and knowledge of the failure of America’s drug policies. The discussion will center around the questions: How does the war on drugs affect the rule of law in America? and Is the law justified in being a moral arbiter over personal decisions, especially given the enormous financial and social cost of such measures? No doubt there will be a lot of other issues and questions surrounding the topic of drug prohbition.
