The War on Drugs has disproportionately harmed communities of color. People have lost jobs, education, housing, their liberty, their families, and their lives to this War.
Now they deserve equity, justice, and repair: ownership of cannabis businesses, full and automatic expungement, and community reinvestment of tax revenue and corporate philanthropy.
We help cannabis companies, patients, and consumers engage with this work.
Cage-Free Cannabis is rooted in three kinds of justice:
Reparative - We coordinate expungement events and support both people and organizations from communities harmed by the War on Drugs.
Economic - We create jobs for communities of color and advocate for an equitable industry.
Environmental - We promote a sustainable cannabis industry.
We consult with brands in the cannabis industry on their social responsibility plans and we create accessories for cannabis consumers.
All of our net profits support the repair of harms of the War on Drugs, often through our non-profit arm, Cage-Free Repair, located at 6151 Strickland Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90042 Cage-Free Repair is a fiscally sponsored project of the Social Good Fund, a tax-exempt organization (EIN: 46-1323531) Purchases and contributions made to Cage-Free Cannabis are not tax deductible.
Funding recipients focus on various aspects of repair, such as re-entry from incarceration, youth development, healing from trauma, and ensuring that people of color benefit from the above-ground marijuana industry.
