Big anti-prohibition wins on Capitol Hill this week

Big anti-prohibition wins on Capitol Hill this week

The U.S. House of Representatives just reduced the grotesque disparity in sentencing for crack vs. powder cocaine. And last night, the "Webb Commission" to study criminal justice reform was approved unanimously.

This didn't happen in a vacuum. And it wasn't inevitable.

You, and many others like you, made this happen, through your support of drug reform in general and LEAP in particular.

The more exposure LEAP gets, the more we expose the cracks in the Drug War. And it's paying off-taboos are falling, fear tactics are failing, and folks are able to talk openly about our nation's failed drug policies.

In this case, that translates directly to thousands of people literally regaining their freedom-walking out of jail and to their families -- because of your support.

In the future, it will result in literally hundreds of thousands of non-violent citizens regaining their freedom, and America regaining its soul, as we end drug prohibition.

I have become executive director of LEAP at a time of intensified progress, where we are transforming the unthinkable into the commonplace at a rate none of us dared dream just a few short years ago.

Hang on, the ride is going to accelerate-our momentum is unstoppable-and the race is to the swift.

Again, thank you so much for your support of LEAP.

Executive Director
