Round up with the Last Prisoner Project
As we move forward into 2021, it’s important to recognize that in just over a decade the cannabis industry has gone from illegal to essential. While this is an achievement worth recognizing, we cannot do so without acknowledging the tremendous injustices caused by the war on drugs. Between the disproportionate incarations of people of color, the unjust sentences given for non-violent cannabis crimes, and the fact that we are able to operate legally while there are individuals still incarcerated for cannabis — we must fight for justice to be served. That’s where the Last Prisoner Project steps in to help. The Last Prisoner Project is ardently committed to righting the wrongs caused by the war on drugs and fighting for equitable change.
Here is the reality we face:
- 15.7 Million people have been arrested for cannabis offenses in the last decade alone
- $47 Billion dollars are spent annually on the war on drugs
- The cannabis industry saw an estimated $10.4 Billion dollars in sales in 2018
The Source+ is proud of the community work we’ve done together with you. With your help through our round-up program, we’ve successfully raised thousands for local Nevada charities including over $4,500 for Candlelighters of Nevada in September, over $2,400 for Ink Ribbon Foundation in October, over $3,000 for Forgotten Not Gone in November, and over $4,900 to Three Square in December. Your kind and thoughtful donations will help local Nevadans improve their quality of life. You should feel good knowing you’ve made a difference in our community. Thank you for contributing to these great causes.
The Source+ is partnering with the Last Prisoner Project in February to help raise funds for their mission. The Last Prisoner Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to cannabis criminal justice reform. LPP was founded out of the belief that if anyone is able to profit and build wealth in the legal cannabis industry, those individuals must also work to release and rebuild the lives of those who have suffered from cannabis criminalization.
The Last Prisoner Project utilizes a three-pronged approach to securing full freedom for the communities they serve. Through intervention, advocacy, and awareness campaigns the Last Prisoner Project works to redress the past and continuing harms of these unjust laws and policies.
For the entire month of February, round your purchase to the nearest dollar and we’ll donate the difference to our partners at the Last Prisoner Project. You can also donate directly in-store via our donation jars.
