Proceeds from sales are earmarked for the Last Prisoner Project. Last Prisoner Project is a nonprofit whose objective is to get cannabis convicts out of jail.
ROLLING PAPERS THAT SUPPORT THE UNJUSTLY INCARCERATED
"So many people are still locked up with lengthy sentences related to cannabis. Campaigns like this are part of who I am. We have to speak up, support causes like Last Prisoner Project and fight for their freedom."
At the campaign’s core is a call to public action. Accompanying each prisoner’s name is a QR code leading to release-papers.com. Here, supporters can sign the Cannabis Clemency Now petition, urging President Biden to release federal cannabis prisoners, and engage in a letter-writing program to the featured inmates.
Highlighted in this campaign are the cases of four individuals, each serving heavy sentences for victimless offences. Edwin Rubis, Hector McGurk, Moe Taher, and Ricardo Ashmeade represent countless others, unjustly punished and forgotten in a rapidly changing landscape of cannabis laws.
While some individuals in the US can legally enjoy cannabis, more than 40,000 people remain imprisoned for the same offense, with many of them residing in states where cannabis is now legalized. Unfortunately, a disproportionate number of these individuals are people of color.
Each package of Release Papers contains a scannable QR code that leads purchasers to a petition advocating for clemency for those currently incarcerated or unfairly burdened by federal cannabis-related convictions. Furthermore, a portion of the profits from the sale of Release Papers will be donated to The Last Prisoner Project, a noble cause dedicated to bringing justice to those affected by outdated cannabis laws.
