Charles Rowland was honored to participate in a debate as part of the Heroin Seminar at Ohio Northern University which was sponsored by the Department of History, Politics and Justice. The debate on the legalization of heroin was the culmination of an ongoing academic discussion of recognizing, understanding and fighting the abuse of heroin in the community. Prof. Kevin Hill, a professor of law at Ohio Northern University spoke on behalf of keeping heroin illegal and subject to criminal sanction. “Prof. Hill was one of my professors and he is a powerful advocate,” said Rowland. Professor Hill’s arguments for keeping heroin illegal are trumpeted by the Drug Enforcement Agency which argues that legalization would only increase the use and abuse of heroin.
Speaking on behalf of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P.) and in his capacity as a practicing criminal defense attorney, Rowland championed the idea of approaching the problems of heroin use in a more effective way. His arguments centered on the failed “War on Drugs” and highlighted efforts to move our policy from enforcement, interdiction and incarceration to treatment and prevention. “It was just great to stand on that familiar stage and argue for something that I have a great passion for. I hope that we caused some policy-makers to rethink their approach to throwing people in prison.” Rowland frequently speaks on behalf of L.E.A.P. and Miami Valley N.O.R.M.L. advocating an end to the failed policies of the drug war.
