John Lovell, prohibition lobbyist

In a previous post I discussed the “law enforcement-industrial complex”, one of the main influences behind the continuing disaster that is drug prohibition. Here is a profile of one such drug warrior, a lobbyist for California police unions. It mentions that police unions spent about $105,000 to combat Prop 19. If the police are merely supposed to enforce the laws that exist, why would they join the campaign against changing the law?
