Free Brittney Griner and All Drug War Prisoners Here and Abroad

Brittney Griner’s story has left people shocked and outraged at her severe sentence of nine years in prison for possessing a small amount of marijuana in Russia.

While President Biden rightfully called on Russia to release her, it has exposed his blatant hypocrisy and inaction on this vital issue at home. On any given day in the U.S., almost 400,000 people are behind bars for a drug offense including many for marijuana.

Biden has done nothing to fix the drug laws that punish us from stalling on his campaign promise to release people in prison for marijuana to failing to support the comprehensive reform we need to end federal marijuana prohibition and fully repair harms.

With this issue now in the international spotlight, this is a pivotal moment to hold him accountable. Tell Biden to release drug war prisoners in the U.S. and take steps to stop locking people up for marijuana by descheduling it to end federal prohibition right now.
