Graphs & Statistics from the Prison Policy Initiative and the ACLU
"Drug laws should reflect the collective will of the populace. Jail time for simple marijuana possession is common in certain jurisdictions, even though 9 out of 10 adults believe people who possess or use small amounts of marijuana should not face any jail time.
Even for individuals who are never incarcerated, collateral consequences that flow from their arrests and convictions—such as lost jobs, ineligibility for public housing, suspended driver’s licenses, and restrictions on access to federal student loans—can significantly derail their lives. A “criminal history” built on minor marijuana convictions can categorize defendants as “career criminals” for sentencing purposes in subsequent cases, thereby triggering harsh mandatory sentences.
CLRP [The Criminal Law Reform Project] has fought to implement and protect medical marijuana and decriminalization laws in jurisdictions around the country, helping thousands of people obtain the medicine they need and keeping people who pose no danger to public safety out of the criminal justice system. We also support states’ efforts to tax and regulate marijuana, as in Colorado and Washington. The criminal justice system lags far behind public opinion on marijuana reform, and CLRP is helping it catch up."

Canniloq aims to show that responsible cannabis use starts with responsible manufacturing. And as stash container manufacturers, we have a responsibility to those who have been sent to prison because of the war on drugs.
At Canniloq, we do not simply want to be an advocate of change in the Cannabis industry, but a catalyst as well. We want to highlight the injustices that have been caused by the war on drugs, primarily the incarceration of nonviolent drug offenders.
That is why 10% of all profits are donated directly to the ACLU's Criminal Law Reform Project.
As we continue to grow, our mission is to hire those who have been victimized by the war on drugs to assemble and create our products, and additional funds will be put towards growing this employment infrastructure.
OUR GOAL: $10,000 CONTRIBUTED TO THE ACLU
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
10% OF PROFITS GO TO THE ACLU TO HELP REFORM THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM AND RELEASE NON-VIOLENT DRUG OFFENDERS FROM PRISON. ADDITIONAL FUNDS WILL HELP TO CREATE AN INFRASTRUCTURE TO HIRE THOSE REINTEGRATING INTO SOCIETY.
