Not Pot believes full cannabis legalization is a step in the right direction, but it’s not enough to correct the wrongs of our criminal justice system. That’s why they are proud to announce the not pot bail fund, a self-funded organization designed to combat mass incarceration—one human being at a time.
Their contribution to the ecosystem is straightforward: through their network of partners, they help pay for someone’s bail every month. while seemingly simple, they believe that paying even one person's bail represents a bigger act of resistance against criminal injustice.
They can’t claim to be able to reform the criminal justice system overnight (it’s complex, sensitive, and rooted in years of racial and gender bias), they look forward to a future in which policies are led by compassion and health instead of social or political agendas.
