“Our Mission is to sell Great Pot and use the power of our business
to Right the Wrongs of the War on Drugs.”
Ben of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
Now is selling cannabis.
Victims of the war on weed may
Stand to benefit from this.
Freeing prisoners, rewriting
Ill-conceived drug policy,
Funding pot-based enterprises
In the Black community—
These are ways that Ben’s new profits
Sponsor justice in the ’hood.
And if munchies spur demand for
More ice cream, that’s also good.
