"The War on Drugs is a disaster for law enforcement." - Tony Ryan

Full Podcast Tony Ryan sacrificed to protect and to serve. In his more than 36 years of continuous service as a Denver police officer, he endured getting stabbed in the hand and in the back, broken bones in a hand and a foot, a head wound requiring 18 stitches, and a gunshot wound to the chest. He took all of this willingly, though, believing the work he did to be honorable. However, one part of policing under our current system that he feels dishonors the Thin Blue Line is the War on  Drugs, which he labels a total failure costing billions of dollars while making the problem worse and enriching drug dealers.
