Oregano is a satire outlet intended to highlight the absurdity of keeping people locked up for weed in a world where it has been legalized.
While the legal cannabis industry builds generational wealth, there are still THOUSANDS of people locked up in prisons around the country for nonviolent cannabis-related charges. As a global pandemic wreaks havoc on prison populations around the world, it is beyond clear that the time has come to let them out: nobody deserve to be sentenced to death over an herb.
The prohibition of cannabis has been a humanitarian disaster, and reparations need to be made. At Oregano, we want to use the power of comedy to help shed light on the fact that something needs to be done. If cannabis is going to be decriminalized, as it should be, then those who were unfairly imprisoned need to be released and have their criminal records expunged.
