Octogenarian Antonio Bascaro is the world’s longest serving marijuana prisoner. You can learn more about Antonio’s case here. But we also thought it would be nice to let the public get to know the real men behind these horrific Draconian sentences for nonviolent marijuana crimes. So we asked a series of fun questions” designed to do just that!
