Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is a non-profit organization. For obvious reasons, we don't get a lot of government grants. Membership in LEAP is free; there are no signup fees or membership dues. This means we rely heavily on donations.
What do we do with this money? For starters, we put up this billboard in Omaha, Nebraska. And we've sent current and former law enforcement officers all over the world to give talks, recruit new speakers, talk to politicians and speak to the media about the War on Drugs. Gradually, we are seeing success. On August 19th, for example, Mexico decriminalized possession of small quantities of drugs. Mexico has a long way to go, but this is a good start.
Help us put up a billboard in your state. Click here to donate to Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. For any donation over $5, we'll mail you a LEAP membership badge. Anything helps but please dig deep and send $15, $25 or even $50 to help us reverse the failed policy of drug prohibition.
