About the Justice For All NFT
We commissioned this piece of artwork from queer multimedia artist and cannabis activist Eizen, who was inspired by the urgent need for change in our criminal justice system. (Read more about the artist.) The design features two cannabis plants emerging from a shadowed pit, representing the widespread acceptance of cannabis into the mainstream.
There are a number of elements found beneath the dark hole, representing the use cases of cannabis: a medical cross and pills to symbolize medicinal use, lightbulbs to speak to the creativity cannabis can spark, lips for sensuality, a heart for love, a smile for joy, and a dove carrying a hemp leaf symbolizing the freedoms still stifled by cannabis criminalization.
Within the design, you can also spot the word "Justice," which is required to bring more meaning to the 420 holiday on April 20. As we look ahead to the future of cannabis in America, it’s important that we recognize the work still required to change policy and remove stigmas for cannabis and hemp users.
You can bid on the 420 Justice For All NFT starting April 15. The majority of the funds from the sale will benefit Last Prisoner Project, with residual funds going to support the artist and House of Wise.
About the artist, Emily Eizen
Eizen's '60s psychedelic-inspired artwork pays tribute to the long, rich history of cannabis culture and activism. She uses her platform to highlight people who have been disproportionately affected by cannabis criminalization. She's attracted to artistic projects that advocate for cannabis reform, including her photography series for the social impact brand 40 Tons, which appeared in HoneySuckle magazine.
"I'm very privileged and lucky to be able to do what I love," says Eizen. "That's not lost on me. I use my position to open doors in the cannabis industry for people who didn't have such an easy way in."
You can bid on the 420 Justice For All NFT starting today. The single, unique edition will be available for bidding through 4:20 p.m. ET on April 20, 2022.
