The organization, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (L.E.A.P), will be announcing election results in real time today, according to Johnny Green with The Weed Blog. He received a message from his friends at the organization stating that L.E.A.P will announce updates throughout the day.
Included in the election day coverage will, of course, be the measures legalizing marijuana in Alaska, Oregon, and District of Columbia. Attention will also be focused on Amendment 2 for legal medical marijuana in Florida, and Proposition 47 in California, which would remove the charge for minor drug possession from the list of felony charges. The organization will be providing real time updates on their blog and Twitter, as well as sending press releases soon after all votes are counted and final. Members of L.E.A.P will also be available to comment on the results.
This evening (afternoon on the West Coast), Norm Stamper, member of L.E.A.P, will be hosting an open-to-the-public discussion through Reddit IAMA at 7:00pm ET. Reddit IAMA, standing for “ask me anything,” is a place for a person to write the information they want to share, and then answer questions asked by participants. Stamper’s purpose is to explain why he supports legalizing marijuana as well as to go over details of the current marijuana policy reform measures and why they are important. Stamper, a retired police chief from Seattle, has seen the benefits that come from marijuana legalization, and has spent the last week travelling to different parts of Alaska sharing his experiences, educating voters and supporting the legalization effort in the state.
