Aug 6, 2021
VS partner Jeffrey Welsh recently sat down Corvain Cooper, chief brand ambassador at social impact cannabis brand 40 Tons and board advisor for Last Prisoner Project, at the Highly Capitalized Studios in Los Angeles. In the interview, Corvain and Jeffrey discuss social equity in the cannabis industry, the mission of the 40 Tons brand, New York's cannabis legalization, and how social equity programs will benefit the legacy community in New York City.
About Corvain Cooper
In 2013, Corvain received a life sentence without parole after a “third strike” for his participation in a cannabis distribution operation. Despite the relatively minor offense, he was effectively “buried alive” at a federal prison in Louisiana, apart from his wife and two children for something that was increasingly becoming legalized across the country. Through his years in prison, activists and voters continued the campaign to relax cannabis laws across the U.S. and Corvain finally, and fortunately, received a grant of executive clemency from Donald Trump in his final days as President of The United States of America in 2021.
