In an effort to help fight criminal injustice and re-imagine drug policy, Copperstate Farms has announced a partnership with Last Prisoner Project, a nonprofit coalition dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry, and committed to raise $100,000 for the organization over the next ten months.
Running September 14th through October 12th, Copperstate Farms will donate $1 for every house-brand cartridge sold. This is the first installment of several campaigns to unfold over the ten-month fundraising period.
"Last Prisoner Project is honored to have the support of Copperstate Farms. It is inspiring to see cannabis industry leaders stepping up to the plate to support individuals who have been negatively impacted by the criminalization of cannabis,” said Mary Bailey, Managing Director at Last Prisoner Project.
Funding will go directly to criminal justice reform initiatives including prisoner release, clemency and record-clearing, vocational training and mentorship programs for reentry, and educational scholarships for currently incarcerated constituents or children of the incarcerated.
According to recent data assembled by the Last Prisoner Project, there are more arrests for cannabis possession each year than for all violent crimes combined, with cannabis making up nearly 40 percent of all drug-related arrests.
Support this campaign by shopping at Sol Flower and fellow participating dispensaries: Jars - New River, Jars - Metro-center, Arizona Cannabis Society, Green Med, Purple Med, Ponderosa Releaf, Green Hills Patient Center, and Greenhouse of Flagstaff. More to come!
About Last Prisoner Project:
The Last Prisoner Project (LPP) is a coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry. LPP is dedicated to releasing cannabis prisoners and helping them rebuild their lives. As the United States moves away from the criminalization of cannabis, giving rise to a major new industry, there remains the fundamental injustice inflicted upon those who have suffered criminal convictions and the consequences of those convictions. Through intervention, advocacy and awareness campaigns, the forces behind the Last Prisoner Project will work to redress the past and continuing harms of these unjust laws and policies and are dedicated to making sure that every last victimless cannabis prisoner walks free.
