"Heavy Dose for a Heavy Cause"
One of our proudest moments this year has been our collaboration with like-minded brand, 40 Tons.
40 Tons is a social justice brand with a mission to give a voice to the voiceless and speak for those who face egregious sentences for non-violent cannabis crimes.
15% of all sales go directly to 40 Tons to support their efforts
Breaking the Chains, Together
The legalization of hemp & cannabis has ushered in a multi-billion-dollar industry with no signs of slowing down. While this worth celebrating on multiple levels – broadening access, fostering higher quality and innovation, assuaging the stigma, and helping people feel empowered to switch to natural forms of medicine – we should not forget about the people that helped forge the path. We wouldn’t have a cannabis (or hemp) industry like we have today if it wasn’t for those that forged forward in the grey to build and sustain demand. Let’s face it, most of us have enjoyed some type of cannabis in our lives before there were dispensaries, and it came from somewhere.
An estimated 40,000 people today are in prison for cannabis-related offenses. Right or wrong, in an age now where there are cannabis shops around every corner, there is a contradiction that needs to be addressed.
40 Tons makes it their goal and mission to help those that have been affected by cannabis crimes by providing legal assistance, outreach, career rehabilitation, and more.
“I am compelled to give a voice to the voiceless; the men and women dying in prison. They aren’t claiming innocence and must still pay their debt to society, but we maintain that no one should spend a lifetime in prison for a plant that many consume and profit from legally. It will not stand.”
