The Weldon Project and National Cannabis Roundtable Launch Cannabis Clemency Campaign

Oklahoma Appleseed

NCR and The Weldon Project have been working with Oklahoma Appleseed for the purpose of preparing multiple petitions for individuals currently incarcerated because of cannabis convictions. The objective would be to hand-deliver these petitions as a group to the newly appointed pardon attorney so that they can then be presented to the president for action as an entire category versus person by person. We’ve turned these around in the span of six weeks at the price of approximately $500 per individual, which is an incredibly low-cost approach toward expediting individuals currently incarcerated for marijuana convictions to be able to finally return to their homes, families, lives, and livelihoods.
