A Conversation About Drug Policy with Judge James P. Gray

picture of book coverOpposition to the war on drugs spans the political spectrum and often produces strange bedfellows. Join IPS Drug Policy Project Director Sanho Tree as he interviews Judge James P. Gray, retired from the Orange County Superior Court.

Before becoming a judge in 1983, he served as a volunteer in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica, a staff judge advocate and criminal defense attorney in the Navy JAG Corps, a federal prosecutor in Los Angeles, and a civil litigation attorney in a private law firm. In addition to being a Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in 1998, he was also a Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in 2004. He has authored the books Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed and What We Can Do About It and A Voter’s Handbook: Effective Solutions to America’s Problems. When conservatives and progressives agree, change can’t be far away.
