About this Organization
POW420’s mission is to empower, educate, and disseminate information for and about people incarcerated as a result of cannabis laws and to end prohibition successfully by striking all sentences that relate to cannabis, and providing reparations to all those harmed by the unjust laws.
POW is an acronym for “prisoner of war” and 420 is a well recognized term for cannabis. Thus, POW420 is all about prisoners relative to cannabis. POW420 is a general partnership dedicated to ending cannabis prohibition by focusing on prisoners and their families, the true victims of war on cannabis, by exposing the tyranny of unjust laws that are cannabis prohibition.
POW420.com is a web site that provides weekly updated information about our brothers and sisters in prison. POW420 information is listed by individual POW420 name and cross referenced by state. Each POW420 has a biography and letters written section. POW420 publishes prisoners needs on their profile page.
