BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) ––– Cheba Hut is celebrating its 25th anniversary by hosting “Smoke Out Injustice Day” and collaborating with the Last Prisoner Project to raise funds and awareness for people serving nonviolent cannabis sentences in prison.

Cheba Hut locations across the country will donate $2 from every entrée sold to the Last Prisoner Project. That includes in-store and delivery orders.

The Last Prisoner Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to releasing every person imprisoned for nonviolent cannabis offenses through legal intervention, public education, and legislative advocacy.

The project is currently working on a case in Louisiana for Kevin Allen, who was arrested in 2012 and 2013 for selling $20 worth of cannabis to an undercover officer. Allen, who had previously been convicted of drug offenses, was sentenced to life in prison under Louisiana’s habitual offender law. A new law may allow Allen to enter into a post-conviction plea agreement with the district attorney’s office in order to reduce his sentence.

Cheba Hut’s Vice President of Marketing Brian Loeb stated that the company has been “deeply rooted in cannabis culture” since its inception in 1998 and has seen firsthand the struggles of those affected by cannabis-related convictions. He went on to say that “Smoke Out Injustice Day” is a chance for Cheba Hut to give back and make a difference.

Customers are encouraged to visit their local Cheba Hut on Jan. 20 to show their support for the Last Prisoner Project and raise awareness for cannabis-related convictions.
