One month!

Today is the one month anniversary of the new blog. We're growing quickly thanks to an awesome group of readers who are visiting daily, posting comments and sharing the blog with others.

Our first post was on August 16th, and since then we've published a total of 42 posts. Over 1700 unique visitors checked out the the blog in the first month. Traffic increased substantially during the last two days, in large part due to a LEAP news release.

What do you think of the layout? Are there any topics you'd like to see discussed? What features would you like to see added? Let me know, and I'll do my best to make it happen.

  1. Dear David,
    please write to me at adam.ostolski[a]krytykapolityczna.pl I was told we know some Polish police officers friendly to the idea of drug policy reform. It may just take some more days to get in touch...
    Best regards,
    Adam

  2. I would love to hear more about the damages the drug war causes to us Americans who have been convicted of these crimes and hence have lost our liberties. I myself LOVE America and yet I find that after my probation is over I'll most likely have to leave because not only am I marred by "scarlet letters" on my record I am also just scared of losing the one liberty I have left in this country, the liberty to go outside!!

  3. Not sure if you can help me here, but do you know if there is an Australian branch of LEAP? Or even a New Zealand one ?

    We hear very little in the way of reform news Down Under and we have little in the way of civil liberties here. They are currently using drug sniffer dogs at public train stations, to detect people with small amounts of cannabis, who have done nothing suspicious to warrant a search except walk past the dog. Apparently that is not an illegal search in Australia.

    I'd love to be able to contact a LEAP group here if there is one for their opinions.

    Keep up the great work too :)

    Dang! No wonder the Aussies who made this video called y'all a police state. And I though the U.S. was bad! Didn't they do that in Nazi Germany to find out if people were smuggling Jews out of the country? What's next? Handing out paper and pencil so they can ask you to write down any illegal thoughts you might have? Brain scans via technology to do that? Groan.

    What I'd Like to See
    Point to resources we can point our legislators to with regards to writing laws to ending prohibition. I know LEAP takes no official stand on what post-prohibition looks like, besides legalization and regulation, but …

    On Dean Becker's Drug Truth Network I learned a website with some ideas for legislators: King County Bar Association.
