More than a job – a calling – a cause

Gallagher Criminal Defense: Liberty and Justice for All

Attorney Thomas Gallagher has been an advocate of ending marijuana Prohibition for decades.  So he is an original member of the first Board of Directors of Minnesota NORML in 2011. And he was Chair of the Board in 2017-2018.

And now polls show super-majority (2/3) support legal marijuana, regulated like beer and wine for adults. So why, then, in a democracy, does the government defy the will of the People? 

We should stop criminalizing marijuana users.  It’s time for Liberty, again.

And Attorney Thomas Gallagher, of Gallagher Criminal Defense, works with, and against, police officers as fellow criminal justice professionals.  Of course, no profession or professional is without virtues and flaws.  But we should neither sentimentalize nor demonize criminal justice professionals.  Instead, judge us for our actions, not our role.

Law Enforcement Officers vs. Officers of the Court

In the trenches: Law enforcement officers, like criminal defense lawyers, see some of the less attractive aspects of life and people. But we also see some of the most inspirational.  And ideally, we can gain insights from these experiences.

For example, Law Enforcement Action Partnership (LEAP), a group of law enforcement professionals advocating legalization of drugs, deserves credit.  After all, we allow our elected officials to pass bad laws. And then we pay our police to enforce; and then our courts to administer them.

But when we do that, we all lose. 

So let’s change the laws. Let’s make them equal, fair, rational. And let’s protect human rights and liberty for all of us.

Of course, criminal defense lawyers help enforce the laws too. But especially, we help enforce the Constitution, the highest law of the land.
