We are sorry to report that we are not aware of any cannabis prisoners having been released this year. Most of those featured below have submitted petitions for clemency to a President Biden or others, and/or have motions for compassionate release in the sentencing courts.
We continuously send funds to them all to help with their commissary needs and we help those who have been released find housing, jobs & job training, clothing, medical treatments and whatever they need to successfully rejoin their communities. We work hand-in-hand with many organizations to these ends.
If you would like to write to any of these prisoners, please feel free to contact them at the addresses provided. Please feel free to write a "letter in support of clemency" to the president and send a copy to the office of the pardon attorney. for more info' contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org.

President Joe Biden says his administration is “working on” plans to fulfill his campaign pledge to free people who are incarcerated for marijuana. This marks the first time that the president has publicly made a substantive comment about cannabis policy since taking office more than a year ago.
“I don’t think anyone should be in prison for the use of marijuana,” Biden said in response to a question from The New York Post’s Steven Nelson on Saturday night after stepping off Marine One on the White House lawn.
“We’re working on the crime bill now,” the president added —though it’s not clear what legislation he was referring to.
