Did you know that black people are 3.73 times more likely than white people to be arrested for cannabis? Cannabis prohibition and mass incarceration has wrecked havoc on our urban communities and completely ruined and destroyed so many lives and families. Join J and the resilient, inspiring Free My Weedman founder Kristal Bush in this episode where they discuss the important message to remember the forgotten stories of the women and survivors who have stood by their "weedman".
Be sure to check our Kristal's award winning film A Woman on The Outside! "Growing up, Kristal watched nearly every man in her life disappear to prison. She channeled that struggle into keeping families connected, both as a social worker and with her van service that drives families to visit loved ones in far-off prisons. But when Kristal's dad and brother return to Philly, her happiness meets the realization that release doesn't always mean freedom. Passionate, funny and resilient, Kristal remains determined to carve out a different future -- for herself and for her young nephew, Nyvae. Part observational documentary, part family album, A Woman on the Outside is a tender portrait of one family striving to love in the face of a system built to break them."
