Marijuana Amnesty Project
On Friday, May 13, PLSE’s Director of Strategic Initiatives, Andrea Lindsay, and Tauhid Chappell, the founder of the new cannabis nonprofit, the Philadelphia CannaBusiness Association (PCBA), appeared on WURD Radio to discuss PLSE’s Marijuana Amnesty Project. The discussion emphasized the importance of expungements and pardons for those with past marijuana convictions as cannabis legalization sweeps across the country, creating new streams of revenue for states and cities while barring those who were previously incarcerated for the plant.
