AMERICA DOESN'T HAVE 40,000 CANNABIS PRISONERS

The idea that ‘No one should be locked up for a plant’ is both a cherished belief in cannabis circles and a central argument for the legal industry’s existence. 

Since its founding in 2019, Last Prisoner Project, a non-profit brainchild of industry pioneer Steve DeAngelo, has become of the most prominent cannabis charities by pledging to free the 40,000 people locked up for cannabis in this country.

However, a WeedWeek analysis of publicly available data suggests the number of cannabis prisoners could be substantially lower. For example, the 40,000 figure includes 11,730 federal cannabis prisoners, but two other non-profits put the number at roughly 3,000.
