DrugSense FOCUS Alert #304 – Saturday, 19 March 2005

Just over two weeks ago, the Media Director and Advisory Board member
for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP) – Howard Wooldridge –
began his historic cross country horse ride promoting an end to 21st
century Prohibition.

This year’s ride, dubbed “The Lone Ranger Rides Again”, will take
Wooldridge from the west coast of the United States all the way to the
east, ending in New York City. Along the way, Howard will meet with
Americans in cities and towns with a focus on speaking to civic
groups, church groups and educational organizations.

He will be conducting media interviews along the route with radio, TV
and print journalists.

With the help of volunteer newshawks, the press coverage will be
posted to MAP. If you become aware of a printed article, but are not
sure how to newshawk it, please contact: heath@mapinc.org

One front page article, linked below, was printed March 18th in the
Edmond Sun. Reporter Alice Collinsworth attended some of Howard’s
speaking events. She was introduced to Howard by friends of both LEAP
and MAP.

We are calling on the many Friends of LEAP across North America to
send a letter to the editor of the Edmond Sun in response to this
prominent article.
