Founder / Executive Director
Ann Lee and her husband Bob Lee founded RAMP based on the belief, rooted in years of research and personal experience, that the prohibition of marijuana is diametrically opposed to the Republican principles of limited government, individual responsibility, and personal freedom.

Her first campaign activity came in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater. In 1983, Lee co-founded the group Women for Reagan. She has participated as a state delegate to almost every Texas GOP Convention for the past 25 years.
