On a previous episode we told the story of 71-year-old Richard DeLisi, America’s longest-serving cannabis prisoner.

Now we have a follow-up. Authorities in Florida have granted DeLisi clemency. He’s scheduled to be released next month. We talk with Chiara Juster, a lawyer who worked with the Last Prisoner Project and the DeLisi family to finally gain freedom for this prisoner of conscience.
