January 26, 2021 (St. Louis, MO) Swade Cannabis is honored to be the first in Missouri to partner with the Last Prisoner Project and the Roll It Up for Justice Program. LPP is a team of cannabis industry leaders, criminal and social justice advocates, policy and education experts, and influencers in social justice and drug policy reform that are committed to freeing every last prisoner of the unjust war on drugs, starting with 40,000 people in prison for cannabis offenses legal in most states.
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 LPP will work to rework the past and halt continuing with the harms of these unjust laws and policies, striving to ensure that every last victimless cannabis prisoner walks free.
The Roll It Up For Justice Program, specifically, is a nationwide campaign encouraging cannabis business to give customers the opportunity to donate to Last Prisoner Project at check out. Small change can make a big impact, and every cent raised through the program gets us closer to the day when every last cannabis prisoner is set free.
“Swade recognizes the responsibility to assist in helping to end the inequality and injustice that persists in the cannabis arena,” said Jack Haddox, Director of Dispensary Operations. “Last Prisoner Project has made incredible progress towards its mission and Swade is proud to contribute to such a committed advocacy group that is facilitating such a meaningful change.”
