From 2003-2009 Nate Bradley was a police officer and a deputy sheriff. During his time in law enforcement he worked patrol, background investigations, and the gang task force. Most of his career was spent proactively working with the local community to reduce crime and neighborhood problems. He loved police work, but being a first hand witness to the war on drugs let him see that it was hurting, not helping society. By the time Nate was laid off in 2009 he was taking 6 prescription pills a day for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). With the recommendation of his personal physician, Nate began to use cannabis medicinally and was able to stop taking all his prescription medication. Since leaving law enforcement Nate has been involved in numerous areas of drug policy reform. In 2010 he became a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition and served as a spokesman for the Yes on Prop 19 campaign to legalize marijuana in California. In 2011 Nate founded Lawmen Protecting Patients, a non profit advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the rights of medical cannabis patients. He has personally influenced numerous pieces of legislation at the CA State Capitol. Nate also runs a strategic consulting company and is a licensed private investigator. Nate has been interviewed by numerous media outlets and has appeared in several documentaries on the topic of marijuana policy reform including the upcoming movie "Legalize It". He has been quoted in numerous publications including the New York Times. He has written opinion pieces for newspapers and websites all over the country including the Huffington Post.
