My name is Stephanie Landa and I am a medical cannabis political prisoner.  I, along with Kevin Gage and Tom Kikuchi were arrested in 2002 for cultivating medical cannabis in San Francisco, California. Currently, I am out on bail, awaiting appeal of my 41 month prison sentence in the US Ninth Circuit of Appeals.

Please help support my cause by purchasing from our line of fine silver jewelry.  A portion of the proceeds will be used to defray my legal expenses.
