Cruel Consequences


We are a 501c3 nonprofit cannabis convict traveling portrait exhibit which started in Virginia in 2018 educating communities about the Human Cost of marijuana prohibition taking part in the movement towards Virginia’s marijuana law reform. Our portraits exhibits were installed in the Virginia General Assembly and we were invited by Attorney General Mark Herring to exhibit at his Cannabis Summit event in December 2019. Our portrait participants have been empowered to use their voice telling their stories in the local and national media like Harry Kelso appearing on ABC Nightline. We’ve lent our temporary exhibits to art galleries, a yoga studio and other community events around the DMV and have permanent exhibits in several cannabis dispensaries throughout the U.S. Come see our beautiful portraits of people who have been harmed by the War on Drugs and learn why denial of employment, housing, child custody, and college loans are cruel consequences based on misguided bias, stereotypes, and stigma.
