More than $1.2 million will be spent to imprison Jerry Duval over the next ten years. He is a state-registered medical marijuana patient who was convicted of federal drug trafficking, even though he strictly complied with all Michigan laws. The Bureau of Prisons has the authority to grant compassionate release due to "extraordinary and compelling circumstances" in Jerry's case, including the high cost of caring for a kidney-pancreas transplant recipient who also suffers from coronary artery disease. Please encourage the BOP to use the powers granted by Congress to relieve overcrowding and save tax dollars by releasing non-violent prisoners serving time for victimless crimes, starting with Jerry Duval.
