Ep. 397 – My conversation with Michael Thompson after he was freed from prison today after 25 years in prison for selling weed

Michael Thompson spent 25 hard years in prison for selling weed to a friend. It’s unthinkable and is one of the worst acts on injustice I’ve ever seen in modern American history. While he was incarcerated, his parents died, his only son died, and he lost almost his entire adult life. Today, after 25 years, he was released – and we had to fight like hell to make that happen. Today Michael and I spoke for the first time with him as a free man.
