Schedule of Neill Franklin Appearances

Neill Franklin, Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), will be in Hawaii next week.

Franklin is a retired police major and a 33-year police veteran who led multi-jurisdictional anti-narcotics task forces for the Maryland State Police. After seeing several of his law enforcement friends killed in the line of fire while enforcing drug policies, Neill knew that he needed to work to change these laws that cause so much harm but do nothing to reduce drug use. Read his bio here.

There are several opportunities to hear him speak!
