A T-SHIRT CLUB WITH A PURPOSE

There are now more states where weed is legal than not…

But so far, it hasn’t done much for all the people still sitting in prison convicted of an activity that is no longer a crime, while thousands of other people build intergenerational wealth doing exactly the same thing.

That is the situation that over 40,000 prisoners face today in the United States alone, while countless others languish in jails and prisons worldwide.

That’s why we’re creating our new T-Shirt Club with a mission: to set them free.

Cool Weed Shirts is donating 10% of proceeds from our T-Shirt Club to the Last Prisoner Project until every last person in prison for weed has been set free.

WHAT DOES THE LAST PRISONER PROJECT DO?

The Last Prisoner Project is a national, nonpartisan not-for-profit that works to end America’s discriminatory and counterproductive policy of cannabis criminalization, as well as to repair the harms of this unjust and ineffective crusade. We work to accomplish this by focusing on three key criminal justice reform initiatives: release, record clearing, and reentry programs.

  • Prisoner Release. A core focus of our criminal justice work is to release incarcerated cannabis prisoners — and we accomplish this through our state and federal cannabis clemency programs (including the Cannabis Justice Initiative), compassionate release efforts, and other legal interventions.
  • Record Clearing. A criminal record can be a significant barrier to employment, housing, financial assistance, and more, and so it’s unsurprising that the data shows that most released prisoners fail without the proper resources in place. This is why we work to advance (and ensure the proper and complete implementation of) broad and automatic clean slate initiatives, expungement processes and record clearing programs.
  • Reentry Programming. Our reentry programs work to reduce recidivism rates by providing the funds, professional support, and educational resources our constituents need upon release. Collectively these programs help cannabis prisoners become fully free.

Beyond release, record-clearing and reentry, we also work to ensure our still-incarcerated constituents can access needed resources, healthcare, and phone calls by providing funding into their commissary accounts.
