On Episode 63 of The Vine, PMP speaks with Daniel Muessig, a former attorney from Pittsburgh, PA. Daniel is on his way to federal prison for a non-violent first-time cannabis offense. As a personal friend from my hometown, this post is a difficult one to write.
Due to the quantity of cannabis involved, Daniel’s case is not handled by the state but considered a federal crime. Therefore, the only way that his charges can be expunged is a personal pardon from President Biden or a change in federal laws where all non-violent cannabis offenders are released.
Listen in for a heartfelt discussion with a good man on his unsettling final days before lock-up. If Daniel’s story resonates with you, please consider donating to the Last Prisoner Project, and use hashtag #FreeDanielMuessig.
