Our favorite quote from Abrahama Keys' interview:

"I met some girls [while traveling]...and they were talking about how they wanted to smoke because it was a better alternative to a lot of the drugs they were taking but they were really afraid and I thought about the idea of, one, fear of prosecution of stuff that was medicine for me...I thought about how it could help so many other people if there wasn't that sigma, if they weren't scared of going to jail for something that could potentially make their life better...and then I think from the standpoint of being an African-American female, everybody, for the most part, knows somebody who's been to jail for drugs. So I think that alone says a lot...there will be some people who don't, but you still feel the impact." (7:30)
