The following quote in support of the Norml Canada 2002 "Senate Report on Cannabis" campaign is from"

Major Neill Franklin - Retired
Executive Director
LEAP - Law Enforcement Against Prohibition


"Four decades ago, President Richard Nixon's own Shafer Commission (National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse) concluded that “Marijuana's relative potential for harm to the vast majority of individual users and its actual impact on society does not justify a social policy designed to seek out and firmly punish those who use it.” It also concluded that, “In short marijuana is not generally viewed by participants in the criminal justice community as a major contributing influence in the commission of delinquent or criminal acts.” Today, in Canada, we recognize the tenth year anniversary of the Senate Report on Cannabis where it was concluded that, “The continued prohibition of cannabis jeopardizes the health and well-being of Canadians much more than the substance itself,” yet cannabis remains illegal in Canada, the US and around the globe. Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) agrees with both findings and continues to work toward an end to the most disastrous public policy since slavery. It's a sad day when our governments refuse to follow their own advice for the good of society and the citizens they are responsible for protecting. If you are in favor of public safety, you cannot be supportive of marijuana prohibition. Like oil and vinegar, the two do not mix." - Major Neill Franklin is the executive director for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition and a former narcotics commander with the Maryland State Police and Baltimore Police Department.

"Many people, especially ignorant people, punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth." - Gandhi
