On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel speaks with Haley Elizabeth Anderson and Mary Bailey about the recently released documentary, The Sentence of Michael Thompson. As canna legalization continues across America, so do canna arrests and convictions. Michael Thompson was sentenced to 40-60 years in prison for selling 3lbs of canna, and served a total of 26 years before Governor Whitmer granted him clemency in 2021. An estimated 40,000 people are still incarcerated in the US for canna offenses while canna-business has grown into a billion-dollar US industry. Haley Elizabeth Anderson directed the film along with Kyle Thrash, and Mary Bailey is the Managing Director of The Last Prisoners Project.
