Life Sentences for Marijuana - Marijuana Lifers' BirthdaysBirthdays and holidays can be especially tough for prisoners serving life sentences for marijuana.  Why not take a moment and send a ray of sunshine inside on a Marijuana Lifer’s birthday?  All it takes is a card, a stamp, and a couple of minutes of your time.

The hand-drawn cards pictured on this page were all made by artist Rory Murray.  You don’t have to get so elaborate with yours (unless you want to).  You can find information about the Bureau of Prison’s rules for mailing at the bottom of this page.

General Bureau of Prison Rules About Sending Mail to Inmates:

  • Only ink and paper are allowed, in other words, no tape, staples, stickers, glue, glitter, doo dads, etc.  While the prisoners would no doubt LOVE the handmade cards your kids make, they sadly would be returned by the prison. Handmade cards are OK, as long as they consist of only a drawing on paper.  Same with commercial cards, bypass anything fancy and stick to cards that are just images on paper.
  • Yes you may send photos.  Prisoners look at the same drab walls and people every day.  Likewise they love getting photos.  You can send up to 25 pages per envelope (photos and paper).  As long as there is no nudity and no illegal activity depicted, everything else is OK.  Send photos of yourself, your family, your pets, your vacation, pretty scenery.  Anything!
  • You can talk about most anything in your letters, except illegal activity.  If you are a cannabis activist, as many followers of this site are, it is perfectly OK to talk about that, just not anything illegal.
  • You can send up to 25 pages per envelope.
  • Books and magazines can be sent BUT they must come from a commercial bookseller, such as Amazon.  Sadly we are no longer allowed to send books and magazines from home.
