#11 - War On Drugs (With LEAP Chairman, Neil Woods)

Version 3.0

Joining the conversation in episode 11 of Version 3.0 is veteran undercover police officer Neil Woods. In the process of infiltrating many of Britain’s most powerful drug gangs, Neil had machetes held to his throat, knifes thrust at his balls and was once made to take so much speed he couldn’t sleep for three days. He eventually became disillusioned with the police work realising that the war on drugs was unwinnable, and now admits “Everything I did while undercover was a waste of time”, “All I did was make the lives of the vulnerable more unbearable”. In this episode we talk to Neil about his undercover work, how the war on drugs has failed, and how decriminalising drugs is the only answer.
