Published Oct 7, 2019 03:47 p.m. ET

Steve DeAngelo is an inspired and undisputed national leader, with four decades of activism and advocacy in the cannabis reform movement. His creation of a model medical cannabis dispensary and lifelong cannabis activism, coupled with his extensive knowledge in this arena has made him one of the strongest voices in the cannabis and hemp industries.

Steve DeAngelo is also the founder of 'Last Prisoner Project' which is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to repairing the past and continuing harms of the criminalization of cannabis; Through an innovative approach to clemency and reentry programs for marijuana offenders, LPP works to bring restorative justice to the cannabis industry.

Imagine sitting in a cell for years, decades, or even for life, convicted of an activity that is no longer a crime, while thousands of other people build inter-generational wealth doing exactly the same thing..The Last Prisoner Project is a coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives, and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry.

As the United States moves away from the criminalization of cannabis, giving rise to a major new industry, there remains the fundamental injustice inflicted upon those who have suffered criminal convictions and the consequences of those convictions.

Through intervention, advocacy, and awareness campaigns the Last Prisoner Project will work to redress the past and continuing harms of these unjust laws and policies.
