Appearing on Fox News’ Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano Monday, former Maryland narcotics police officer Neill Franklin compared the U.S. war on drugs to alcohol prohibition in the 1920′s, saying both were a “complete failure.”

Franklin added that ending the “senseless” war on drugs would prevent many police officers from being killed in the line of duty.
