from the Cannabis Caucus of the Michigan Democratic Party
A heartbreaking video short from The Clemency Project video featuring the family of incarcerated Michigan cannabis prisoner Rudi Gammo. Rudi is imprisoned for activities made legal by the passage of Michigan’s Prop. 1 legalization law in 2018.
In this video, Cannabis Caucus Chair Mike McCurdy interviews Gammo’s wife Vida, who describes how difficult it has been for her family- their son has leukemia and Rudi has contracted Covid-19 while in prison. The Clemency Project is Michigan’s version of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers’ state-based clemency and expungement project.
