Based on reader suggestions, I sent the book and some LEAP materials to three contest winners, including Mayor Ross Forrest of Lake Cowichan, British Columbia. Today I learned this ended up generating a mention for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition in the local newspaper, the Lake Cowichan Gazette:
Responding to a package of information sent to council from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), a group that hopes to legalize drugs, council decided to at least consider their point of view, and to review the material.A big thank you to the blog reader who made this suggestion in the first place. They wanted to remain anonymous, but I feel it's important to thank them publicly.
“I don’t want to hide this stuff from you,” Mayor Ross Forrest said, of having received the package, complete with a DVD that both councillors Bob Day and Tim McGonigle were interested in watching.
Update: please note this is a pre-scheduled post, written last night.
