Copperstate Farms Management, LLC, a vertically integrated cannabis company based in Arizona, announced a partnership with Last Prisoner Project, a nonprofit coalition dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry.
In an effort to help fight criminal injustice and reimagine drug policy, Copperstate Farms has 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% of all drug-related arrests.
