Fundraising campaign started to free Missouri man serving life for marijuana



Efforts to free Jeff Mizanskey, Missouri’s only prisoner serving life without parole for marijuana charges, are continuing with an online fundraiser that seeks to raise money for a media blitz that would aim to persuade Gov. Jay Nixon to grant clemency.
The goal of the Indiegogo campaign is to raise $21,000 – a symbolic amount to represent the 21 years that Mizanskey has been imprisoned – for a series of ads for print, radio, TV, online, and billboards. The radio and TV ads will feature Mizanskey himself. Please visit Indiegogo for more on the campaign and to donate.
