Last month Foster was finally freed! The governor who approved the order is one who often rejects his parole board's recommendations to free people. So, this is definitely some very good news -- but also a sign of how prohibitionists are determined to drag things out as long as they can -- they know we're winning, but they're going to take down as many good people in the meantime as they can. The more we can expose what they are doing, the less they'll be able to get away with it.
Last month we had two media hits that we're particularly happy about -- both on The Daily Dish, one of the top-read blogs in the country, published by Atlantic editor Andrew Sullivan. The first was a "Map of the Day" post illustrating the absurdity of a provision currently appearing in federal needle exchange legislation. The second highlighted a post by Scott Morgan about how marijuana is easier to get than beer. We also recently provided information on legalization supporters to a BBC reporter who contacted us.
