Roll-up # 172: Free the Previous Man, Half II: He is Coming Residence


In an earlier episode, we told the story of 71-year-old Richard DeLisi, America’s longest serving cannabis prisoner.

Now we have a follow-up. Florida authorities have granted grace to DeLisi. He is due to be released next month. We speak to Chiara Juster, a lawyer who worked with the Last Prisoner Project and the DeLisi family to finally gain freedom for this prisoner of conscience.
