Addressing delegates at a conference in Lichfield Cathedral, Staffordshire, Keith Hellawell said agencies should concentrate on developing new crops for farmers to plant.
The former Chief Constable of West Yorkshire said: "The scorched-earth policy was often ineffective and the war against drugs needed a global, multi-agency approach.
"It panders to the hard line on drugs, but how does it stop drugs getting into America?
"We have to develop alternative economies and crops."
