No One Should Go To Jail For Marijuana Offenses
OREGON–(ENEWSPF)–December 11, 2012. There have been a lot of petitions going around lately, and I couldn’t be happier. Even if the White House chooses to ignore these marijuana petitions, we need to keep shoving them down their throats to keep awareness up, and the pressure on. Below is language for a very important petition that I encourage everyone to sign:
A petition for clemency and commutation of life-without-parole sentences on behalf of John Knock, Paul Free, William Dekle, Larry Duke and Charles Cundiff. Each are serving life sentences without possibility of parole for their common crime: selling marijuana. These crimes in common and the criminal histories of these men involve absolutely no allegations of violence. Petitioners are well into their sixties, the age of normal retirement. Each has served at least 15 years in prison, exclusively for selling marijuana. Indeed, the average length of incarceration each of the five Petitioners has endured is 19 years. Without Presidential Clemency, each will die in prison.
