Jailbreak: A Cannabis Industry Call to Action
U.S. prisons are packed with all kinds, to say the least. A large percentage of people in prison earned that time fair and square and deserve to serve every single second of their sentence. However, looking deeper into what makes up that population, there are so many nonviolent offenders who simply drew the shortest straw and ended up incarcerated for obscenely harmless charges. Those charges can come from the possession of an ounce or less worth of cannabis, and that small amount of weed earns people a five-year vacation, or worse. That’s our target now, and we are planning a nationwide jailbreak, of sorts, for as many of them as possible.
Too many Americans are behind bars for possessing cannabis or growing it at their home. They never sold it to an undercover; they never sold it to a high school student, they didn’t get caught with ten other illegal substances, they weren’t violent when arrested and, most importantly, nobody died from it. They got caught with natural medicine that you cannot overdose on and that was their crime. So many families have been decimated by these petty charges. Its domino effect has yet to be fully understood. That’s a fight my company is eager to take up, and we’re happy to throw the first punch.
The NFL has made it trendy to take a knee at the start of the national anthem during the last few years, and with no end in sight, President Trump made a very bold statement. He said that if a player plans on kneeling during the anthem, don’t do it without recommending someone for a presidential pardon. That’s a profound and deeply powerful message if you choose to hear it that way. He basically said to bring him the names of who has been wrongfully convicted, and he’ll look into a pardon. No promises, just an opportunity. That’s what so many of these nonviolent inmates need to get them through their sentence.
We are all deeply connected in this country due to social media’s ability to send a message fast. So here is my message. We want to compile a list of as many nonviolent, cannabis-only related charges as possible. Simultaneously, I want to compile a list of which NFL players have decided to take a knee. I know some of those players have great intentions, but I also know that many of them are simply doing it because they are followers and want to act as if they care. If we see you kneeling, you are getting a letter directly from us with a list of names that they can choose from before taking another knee. In a few short months, the Presidential inbox should be stuffed with names to look into for issuing a pardon.
We need the public’s help badly. So many of these inmates have been forgotten. It would be impossible for us to find them all without your help. So our plea to you is to help us find them fast! No money, no donations, no memberships or any kind of catch. If you know of someone who has been incarcerated for only cannabis-related charges, we want to know their full name, charges, and where they are located. At the same time, we need to gather as many NFL players dropping to a knee during the national anthem. If they drop to a knee, they’ll be hearing from me personally. Many of them say it is their duty to take a knee to take action against something they don’t feel is right. That’s how I feel; this is my duty as the leader of this company. So we have decided to make lemonade as quickly as possible and offer a solution. We’ll use their taking of a knee to offer a glimmer of hope for someone behind bars that shouldn’t be there to begin with. If the end result is one pardon getting issued, then it was a huge success for that person getting their life back, and that’s all we could hope to achieve.
