Cruel Consequences is a portrait series exhibit to bring awareness to how cannabis charges in the U.S. are ruining lives. These portraits are part of both a physical traveling gallery exhibit which appeared across Virginia for Virginians and lawmakers to experience these powerful stories and now is expanding to cover unjust cannabis consequences across the U.S.
We are now expanding our portrait series and we are coming to NYC!
We are putting together a NY- Tri-state area series and will have a traveling exhibit and permanent installation in the NYC metro area to highlight drug war veterans from the Empire State.
Collateral consequences like denial of housing, employment, college loans, child custody etc. often last a lifetime after even the smallest of cannabis convictions. No matter how you feel about cannabis, most people agree people should not pay for life. Much of the public is not aware of these collateral consequences.
