“Lifers” is a six part, forty-eight minute, documentary series that focuses on people that are currently serving life without parole in the American justice system for cannabis. Today May 5, 2016 We are adding All Non-Violent Drug War prisoners to our documentary! The first episode of the documentary will be focusing on prisoners that have served unusually long criminal sentences for cannabis, and industry advocates/leaders in the cannabis community that have strong beliefs to releasing people that are serving time in prison for cannabis. We will also show off our footage from our interview in June 2015 with Jeff Mizanskey inside the Missouri State Correctional Center. Jeff Mizanskey was a victim of the War On Drugs/ Three- Strike Policy, which kept him from freedom and behind bars for 21 years and 9 months. Jeff Mizanskey is free now as of Sept, 01, 2015. Thank You Governor Nixon.

 We call them “Plant Prisoners”

The goal of the project is to raise awareness and aid in freeing all prisoners in America that are serving sentences for non-violent cannabis crimes. “Almost 60% of Federal prisoners

Sponsor HempFest Aug 19-21,2016

Sponsor #1- HempFest Aug 19-21, 2016

are behind bars for drug offenses: Only about 3% are for violent offenses.”  according to Mikki Norris, Chris Conrad, and Virgina Resner in the book titled “Human Rights – US Drug War”.

Jeff Eichen has spent the last 30 years pursuing the legalization of cannabis. He has spoken with several leaders in the industry across the United States about the ongoing issue of people serving life without parole sentences for non-violent cannabis crimes. His background in photography has let him capture this story in a moment by moment cinematic form and now his goal is to push for the creation of a documentary series that would be distributed via broadcast television or online through companies such as Netflix or Hulu.

How Significant Are Obama’s 1,385 Commutations?

“LIFERS” The Movie is a bit disappointed, but holding hope for Total Freedom very soon!

How Significant Are Obama's 1,385 Commutations?

ILLUSTRATION OF CHELSEA MANNING BY JULIA KUO Read More…

President Obama has commuted more prison sentences during his presidency than the total number of commutations issued by the past 12 presidents combined. But when you compare the percentage of commutations to the overall prison population, his record begins to look less historic.

No time to give-up now. Lifers appreciates your assistance to support our travel, and Film Project Pre and Post Production to get the Movie Series out to Festivals and the WORLD!

UNBELIEVABLE FOLKS!!!!

DEA Declares CBD Extracts Illegal, But What Does That Mean?

The feds tightening up on cannabis extracts, including CBD. Though 8 individual states enacted comprehensive cannabis reform in November [2016], the federal government appears to have other plans. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has released a new drug code for cannabis extracts. Unfortunately, the news doesn’t bode well for CBD. The DEA has declared CBD extracts illegal.

Are we truly moving forward and ending PROHIBITION…

“Lifers” The Movie is dedicated to the release of all Plant and Non-violent prisoners from prison for The WAR On Drugs and crimes which the system needs reform not imprisonment…

Making CBD illegal~The component in the Marijuana plant family responsible for assisting with Pain, Cancer and Epilepsy to name a few, is utterly unforgivable.

Shame on us and our US DEA for making this the new nightmare…

June 17 marks the 45th anniversary of the War on Drugs, and it’s time to come to a concession: The war on drugs has been incredibly successful. You read that right. You could even take it a step further and argue that of all of the policies that American politicians enacted in the 20th century, the war on drugs was the most successful one.oberia-dempsey-war-on-drugs1960

JUST IN!!!!

Our map shows current state laws and recently-approved ballot measures legalizing marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. Medical marijuana laws recently passing in Arkansas, Florida and North Dakota have yet to become effective. Laws permitting recreational use in Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada have also not yet been implemented after receiving voter approval. Information is current as of Nov. 11, 2016.

Marijuana Legalization Status
Medical marijuana legalized
Marijuana legalized for recreational use
No laws legalizing marijuana

 

Some states, such as Virginia, enacted laws decades ago allowing for the possession of marijuana if individuals received prescriptions from doctors. Federal law, however, prohibits doctors from prescribing marijuana, rendering those laws invalid. Doctors can only write a recommendation for medical marijuana, which is different than a prescription.

George Martorano Released From Prison After 31 Years for Drugs
Murderers, rapists and child molesters have spent far less time behind bars.

On October 8th, the Department of Justice announced that 6,000 federal inmates would be released “to reduce overcrowding and provide relief to drug offenders who received harsh sentences over the past three decades,” part of President Obama‘s new prison reform plan, which he addressed in July in Philadelphia at the NAACP convention. Well, it turns out that just three days before the DOJ announcement, former Philadelphia drug dealer George Martorano was released from federal prison after serving 31 years on drug charges.

Martorano — the son of late Philly mobster Raymond “Long John” Martorano — was said to be the longest incarcerated non-violent offender in the federal prison system prior to his release on October 5th from Florida’s Coleman Prison. Arrested in Philadelphia in 1982, later pleading guilty to drug charges (no violent offenses), and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, the South Philadelphia man was considered to be one of the biggest casualties of Ronald Reagan‘s War on Drugs. Indeed, many murderers, rapists and child molesters have spent far less time in prison than Martorano.

That’s not to say that Martorano was dealing dime bags of weed on the street corner. Federal authorities accused Martorano of being at the top of an organized crime drug business that saw annual revenues of $75 million. The FBI caught him with a truckload — literally, a truckload — of marijuana, and his guilty plea included a variety of drug charges, including heroin and cocaine distribution.

So how does a guy enter a guilty plea and still wind up being sentenced to die in prison? Good question.

Martorano’s attorney in the drug case was the notorious Robert “Bobby” Simone, a good friend of the mobster Nicodemo “Nicky” Scarfo. Simone advised Martorano that if he entered a guilty plea, he would likely spend around a decade in prison, even though that was actually harsher than the time suggested by the sentencing guidelines back then: just three or four years. But, much to Martorano’s shock and horror, the judge dished out the drastic sentence, later affirmed by another judge after an appeal.

By all accounts, Martorano was a model prisoner, teaching other inmates yoga, creative writing and a prison course called Release Preparation: Starting a Business for Under $1,000. He never stopped fighting for his release. He petitioned the Supreme Court to take his case — they declined — and in 2014, he asked the court to reduce his sentence. In that appeal, a prison psychiatrist called Martorano’s behavior “outstanding” and insisted that he “has been a positive role model and positive influence.” Finally, when he turned 65 this year, he became eligible for the DOJ’s Compassionate Release program, and now he’s a free man.

 

We attempted to reach Martorano through his current attorney, Theodore Simon — yes, the same Theodore Simon who represented Amanda Knox and Ira Einhorn — but so far, Martorano’s not talking.

“Our time is not God’s time, but prayers do get answered,” says cousin Steve Martorano, a popular chef with restaurants in Florida, Las Vegas and Atlantic City. “Changes need to be made in our judicial system so this never happens again.”

Antonio Bascaró, 80, the nation’s longest serving marijuana prisoner

He is marijuana’s forgotten man.

Antonio hasn’t been mentioned in a U.S. newspaper since 1982. He’s unremarked upon on marijuana-related web sites. Even Beth Curtis, founder of lifeforpot.com and an expert on prisoners serving long marijuana sentences, was amazed that she had not heard of him.

Four weeks ago, Antonio’s youngest daughter, Aicha, sent an unsolicited e-mail to The Clemency Report: “Hello! Can you help me?,” she asked.

Her father’s case seemed too horrible to be true: 35 years in prison for a non-violent, first-time marijuana-only offense? Sadly, research confirmed the story was true — and even more important than his daughter realized.

TONY was Not released this past WEEK! Come on FOfLiKS!!!

Please Mr. President OBAMA! Grant Clemency for Prisoners

Serving LIFE SENTENCES for Marijuana

98 Clemencies Announced Today, None for Marijuana

Marijuana Lifer Project

OCT 27, 2016 —

Meet some of the nonviolent offenders serving life for marijuana at our website www.MarijuanaLiferProject.org

and please keep sharing this petition.

President Obama Grants Commutations
Today, the President granted commutation of sentence to the following 98 individuals:
David Alan Aldridge – Odessa, TX Offense: Conspiracy…

nonviolent offenders serving Life Without Parole or De-Facto Life Sentences (defined as 25 years or more)

for nonviolent marijuana offenses.  Most prisoners serving LIFE SENTENCES for MARIJUANA exercised

their sixth amendment right to a trial by jury and received significant sentencing enhancements as a result.

Most were convicted of conspiracy, based only on the testimony of informants and cooperating witnesses

seeking to reduce their own sentences.

We believe it both fiscally and morally irresponsible to condemn any marijuana offender to die behind bars

for a nonviolent offense.  Reasonable parameters, such as 10 years served or advanced age, can be implemented

in order to qualify marijuana lifers for commutation.

We urge the President to use his power to grant clemency and show compassion to these prisoners and their

families by offering them a second chance at returning to life as productive members of society.
