Before I get to today’s newsletter, I have a favor to ask. Antonio Bascaro, the world’s longest serving marijuana prisoner, needs your help. No I am not asking for money, just 5 minutes of your time and a postage stamp.
Antonio is 83 years old and has been incarcerated for 38 years (since 1980) for a nonviolent marijuana conspiracy offense. He is eligible for compassionate release, he should have gone home 2 years ago, but because of mishandling of paperwork at the prison, he did not get credit for “good time” and he is still stuck behind bars.
PLEASE take a moment and write a letter to the Inspector General asking him to investigate this. The 5 minutes you take to write a simple letter, could actually help this elderly gentleman go home to his family.
Everything you need to know, including a sample letter you can paraphrase, is at this link. I thank you, Antonio thanks you, and his family thanks you.
I had the pleasure of having a chat with author David Bienenstock recently after the release of his instant classic book How to Smoke Pot (Properly): A Highbrow Guide to Getting High (2016, Plume Books). Sure, there are other general guides to cannabis out there, but it is Bienenstock’s voice and experience that really sets this one apart. This is someone who has been in the weed scene for decades and has lived through the changes and known the major players every step of the way. Readers are treated to an insider view, and Bienenstock never loses sight of the rich culture and history of oppression and activism that are essential to truly understanding this incredible plant and those who have struggled to legitimize it.
