LEAP billboard up in Omaha

Posted by Richard on July 28, 2008

Thanks to a generous donor, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) has its first billboard up. Check it out — it looks pretty good. Here's the scoop from Tony Ryan of LEAP:

That’s right – LEAP’s first ever billboard – now showing at 108th and I street in Omaha, Nebraska. It is up high, where many can see it, and it shows a new website for us which we can use to measure response and effectiveness.

It will be there three months and then will move around the city to other locations for additional three month periods for at least a year – all thanks to LEAP supporter and donor Melanie Marshall.

I was in Omaha to assist with the unveiling of the billboard via an on-air interview with talk-show host Scott Vorhees of Omaha’s superstation KFAB (1110 AM).

While in Omaha July 17 and 18, I also spoke at three Kiwanis Club meetings, wrote an Op-Ed on the War on Drugs which was published Friday, July 18 in Omaha’s World-Herald, did an interview with the Bellevue Leader weekly and, along with Melanie and her husband, spoke with Omaha’s US Congressman Lee Terry about the Drug War.

Tony is a retired Denver cop and one of the really good guys. If you ever get the chance to hear him speak, do it. Meanwhile, how about donating a few bucks to LEAP?

    The billboard just happens to be across the street from the barracks of the Nebraska State Troopers.

    That’s great! Some of them are bound to check out the website, so maybe LEAP will get a few new members from among their ranks.

    Thanks for stopping by, Mike!

    Nice to find another blogger supporting LEAP. The best representatives of the anti-Prohibition stance.

    Agreed. Certainly many mainstream Americans are more likely to take a well-reasoned argument against prohibition seriously if it comes from the law enforcement community than if it comes from a bunch of stoner college students. 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by, Allan!
