Impacted by the "War on Drugs?" We need to tell your story
This April 20th will be the biggest 420 in history. And for good reason. Marijuana is legal in California, opening the door to a multibillion dollar industry and the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs.
But the truth is that the so-called "War on Drugs" has taken a costly toll on Americans. While millions prepare to celebrate 420 this year, millions have been negatively affected by failed cannabis laws. There lives and the lives of their loved ones are still being impacted.
If you or a family member have been arrested or convicted of a marijuana charge, we'd like to interview and photograph you for our "420 Portraits Project." It will be similar to StoryCorps.
Together, we can make a permanent change by showing the world how real people have been impacted.
Who should come?
People who have been arrested or incarcerated for a marijuana charge, or members of their family who have been impacted.
Where do I need to be?
In Bayview, San Francisco. Upon filling out the form below, we'll get back to you with a call-back time and the address of the location.
When is this?
The first session will be this Saturday, April 7th.
What do I need to do?
We will sit you for a photo portrait, then interview you for 15 minutes so you can share your story.
