The Truth of the US “War on Drugs” and Latin American Cartel Violence

A presentation by Larry Talley, former Navy Officer and speaker with Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, on his first ever speaking tour.

Larry Talley was a Navy officer for 20 years, and was stationed in Panama for five of them. While in Central America, he routinely worked in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to counter the efforts of drug cartel’s throughout Latin America. Larry was personally involved with many raids on cartel operations and drug production facilities, and witnessed firsthand the devastating violence and destruction caused by the illegal drug market. Thousands of cartel-related murders are taking place across the region annually, contributing to ecological destruction, mass migration, and cultural degradation. It is estimated that up to 70% of all funding for the drug cartels can be linked to marijuana sales within the United States alone. Larry will testify to these horrible crimes, and make the case for what he believes will fix drug related violence, both inside the U.S. and around the globe: the full legalization and regulation of all drugs.

Join Students for Sensible Drug Policy and Ajua Campos for a groundbreaking dialogue about U.S. drug policy, and it’s effect on the rest of the Americas. If we hope to address the cycles of violence throughout the Americas, we cannot do so without talking about ending the “War on Drugs.”
