Here's what LEAP speaker Tony Ryan, a 36 year veteran of the Denver police department, has to say:
"Tonight, Colorado voters made history by passing the first marijuana legalization law in the country. As a law enforcement professional who arrested more people for marijuana than I'd like to admit, I've been waiting years for this day. Tonight I'm proud to say that my home state is the first to strike a blow against decades of marijuana prohibition. Now we must seize the momentum kickstarted by voters tonight and make sure that more lawmakers take action in state legislatures and on the congressional level."
