About This Campaign
Emancipate NC supports the people of North Carolina as they free themselves from mass incarceration and structural racism. Don’t Plead to Weed is an Emancipate NC campaign.
Weed is less dangerous than alcohol, but it is criminalized in North Carolina because of racism and xenophobia. The smell of weed is an excuse for police to harass Black and Brown people and search their cars. Take back your rights. Make them prove whether cannabis is legal hemp or illegal marijuana.
