The Last Prisoner Project along with the Cannabis Caucus of the Michigan Democratic Party, FORCE Detroit, and The Redemption Foundation have launched the Michigan Cannabis Prisoner Release Campaign.

The progression of cannabis within this country has called for a need for criminal justice reform. Long time supporter of LPP and advocate, TV host Montel Williams has a personal history with Michigan cannabis reform, stating, “Michigan’s failure to address restorative justice as part of cannabis legalization shocks the conscience.” Williams was arrested in a Detroit airport for possession of a pipe in 2002.

The campaign aims to secure the release and record expungement of Rudi Gammo, Michael Thompson, and all nonviolent Michigan cannabis prisoners. In conjunction with its launch, the Michigan Cannabis Release Campaign announced a donation of $10,000 to the family of Rudi Gammo, whose 6-year-old son Santino has recently been diagnosed with leukemia.
