Cannabis Prisoners Project
We make entertaining films that also impact people directly and our hope is that The Moneytree will be a catalyst for serious conversation about how we relate to and support each other. Many citizens are in jail for cannabis related offenses because of ridiculously draconian laws. In fact, of the 8.2 million marijuana arrests between 2001 and 2010, 88% were for simple possession. In 2010 alone, more than half of all drug arrests were cannabis-related and according to FBI data, in 2012 Police arrested a US citizen for cannabis every 42 seconds. This must stop!
Half of all sales from The Moneytree Sound Track will go directly to non-profit law firms through the Cannabis Prisoners Project. The firms will be asked to reopen cases of citizens who didn't have the resources for proper representation and as a result received much longer prison terms had they been sentenced now in the light of new, more liberal laws. Our aim is to have their sentences greatly reduced and with luck get them releases and return them to their families
The Moneytree Sound Track will be a compilation of talented, politically-engaged artists who support the decriminalization of cannabis.
