Below is a great summary of the marijuana reform efforts and results from the 2012 Election. This list was compiled by Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P.). L.E.A.P. was absolutely VITAL to the victories last night, and I encourage all TWB readers to donate to L.E.A.P. so that they can come help in your area too!
What an incredible night! Nine victories for drug law reform all across the country! In case you missed it, here is a summary of results and links to the pages where they can be found for all marijuana measures appearing on the ballot last night.
