Lil Wayne's Cannabis Brand GKUA Partners with Last Prisoner Project
GKUA, the cannabis brand co-founded by rapper Lil Wayne, has partnered with The Last Prisoner Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cannabis-related criminal justice reform.
“The Last Prisoner Project is doing important work and the GKUA team and I are grateful to be involved in raising awareness,” Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr., said in a statement issued to THCnet.
According to a statement, the funds will support Last Prisoner Project's "work and initiatives to free prisoners of the unjust war on drugs, starting with 40,000 people in prison for nonviolent cannabis offenses."
Launched in California late 2019, GKUA sells a line of high-potency cannabis products, including flower, vapes and concentrates.
The GKUA brand recently partnered with Harmony Extracts and expanded its reach into Colorado. Its products are also available at dispensaries in Michigan.
The Last Prisoner Project legally intervenes, advocates and generates awareness for individuals convicted of low-level marijuana crimes, according to its website. The group partners with some of the top names in the cannabis industry as it works to repair the damage caused by the war on drugs.
