Voices of the Cannabis War – News From the Front Lines September 2016
Helping Prisoners of Weed (POW’s) – School’s back in session and while parents rush to the stores with their kids to meet their school supply and clothing needs, a plant prisoner’s child suffers because their parent is locked away or is financially strapped due to a raid or some other form of government robbery. Luckily there is Parents 4 Pot, a non-profit whose goals include breaking the marijuana stigma and to help the children who are victims of the meaningless drug war by getting them the supplies and support they need. Parents 4 Pot is now going into their 3rd year for the school fund drive and could use your help by visiting their website at http://www.parents4pot.org/ and making a donation, all proceeds go to helping a family victimized by the war on pot.
CAN-DO – CAN-DO is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit foundation that advocates Clemency for All Non-violent Drug Offenders. These are the faces of the drug war. Behind every face is a human with a story. Overly punitive drug laws create negative consequences that trigger a chain reaction upon innocent family members, friends and our society. Most of these people have been locked up for decades. Until our drug laws change, the only relief these people have for mercy, is a presidential pardon in the form of executive clemency. Visit their website at http://www.candoclemency.com/.
Life for Pot – Life for Pot is an organization that spotlights offenders who have received the sentence of life without parole for marijuana offenses. We do not believe that nonviolent marijuana offenders should receive sentences of life for pot. Visit https://www.lifeforpot.com/ to find out what you can do.
Freedom Grow – Thousands of people are spending years behind bars. Over 3000 people are facing the grim possibility of spending the rest of their lives in prison for being involved in activities that had no victims. We at Freedom Grow feel that these prisoners are still part of our community and we are committed to making their lives as comfortable as possible. Despite any claims to the contrary, prison life is not a place where anyone is coddled. The basic necessities of life like soap, combs, toothbrushes, clean drinking water, palatable food, phone calls home, postage stamps, and dozens of other items that you take for granted are denied to them. These items are available to the prisoners through the prison’s racketeering commissary system for a steep price but to help comfort them we are willing to pay any price and bear any burden. Your donation will be transferred to one or more of these prisoners. We guarantee that 100% of your donated dollars will go directly to our cannabis POWs. All fees, postage, stationery, and administrative costs to get your dollars to the prisoners are donated by our volunteers. To make a donation towards prisoner commissary visit http://www.freedomgrow.org/.
The November Coalition – The November Coalition is a non-profit organization of grassroots volunteers educating the public about the destructive increase in prison population in the United States due to our current drug laws. We alert our fellow citizens, particularly those who are complacent or naive, about the present and impending dangers of an overly powerful federal authority acting far beyond its constitutional constraints. The drug war is an assault and steady erosion of our civil rights and freedoms by federal and state governments. To learn more visit http://november.org/.
