Life Sentences For Marijuana

To the best of my knowledge, The “Evil Weed” has been available since the 1940′s for sure, probably longer, and I’m sure will be with us for years to come. I’ve always felt the punishment for use and or sale has been worse than the crime. I don’t have a dog in this fight as I’m neither a user or seller however, my belief  is,  Oklahoma took a huge step backwards on this deal. Might be time for them to take a couple tokes off the peace pipe if you get my drift.

To many of us, the idea of anyone spending life in prison for a nonviolent marijuana offense is absolutely ridiculous. Yet with the recent passage of a bill in the Oklahoma State Legislature making the manufacture of hash punishable by life imprisonment, it is clear that life sentences for nonviolent marijuana offenders do exist. In fact, a new website is drawing attention to this issue and has identified several people who are currently serving life sentences for nonviolent marijuana offenses.

LifeforPot.com focuses on finding individuals who have been sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for federal nonviolent marijuana only offenses. Beth Curtis, the founder of the website, has identified eight people, each with a unique background and story of how they came to spend the rest of their lives in prison for nonviolent marijuana offenses.
