President Biden: Clemency for Federal Marijuana Prisoners

The CAN-DO Foundation and Freedom Grow Forever is urging President Biden to free every prisoner serving federal time for marijuana drug cases.  Not one person in the history of our nation has overdosed on marijuana.  Cannabis has become a billion dollar legal industry, for some, while others rot in prison for federal conspiracy cases, including people who thought they were compliant with the laws of their state for medical marijuana, but were indicted and convicted in federal court because the federal government has yet to recognize that cannabis has any medicinal properties.   

Both President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris indicated that marijuana prisoners should not remain incarcerated while on the campaign trail. That can easily be achieved with the stroke of the President's pen who can free all cannabis prisoners using his executive clemency power. Please sign our petition and help raise awareness to end the suffering of the following individuals who are currently incarcerated for cannabis.    

Countless people do not believe there are people serving time for pot, much less life without parole.  Therefore, we have included the names of several cannabis prisoners (many are now free due to advocacy - see below) with a link to their profile pages so you can read their stories. Most have individual change.org petitions you can also access on their page, sign and share.  Many volunteers give their time free of charge to help us compile the following list that is still growing.

We need YOUR help so we can continue to write their stories, create profile pages and assign penpals for every cannabis prisoner but more importantly to BRING THEM HOME!
