On the night of this historic election, I am once again humbled and awed by the devotion of my colleagues who worked so hard for the victories we have achieved today and by the wisdom of the voters in Colorado, Washington, Massachusetts, Detroit and elsewhere who cast their votes for a smarter and more humane justice system. Most of my experience with the war on drugs has been characterized by loss. Today the story of my experience has turned to one of hope. The pace of reform is increasing. It took us a long time to get here, but we have finally begun to win the war on drugs by realizing it is time for that war to end.
Thanks to all of you,
Neill Franklin, Executive Director, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
