Emmanuel Appiah

I am an incoming law student at uOttawa Law,  interested in privacy, human rights, copyright, and digital justice. I first became interested in law from observing my community’s interaction with law enforcement and understanding the power it holds for those in marginalized communities. Aligning with Cannabis Amnesty’s work, I want to work towards meaningful cannabis justice for those disproportionally affected by anti-drug policies in Canada. 

 

 

Tiffany Phan

I am a JD candidate at Osgoode Hall Law School. My lifelong passion for equity, fairness, and justice motivates me to pursue a career in criminal law. The historic criminalization of cannabis possession continues to disproportionately target and affect poor and racialized communities, especially now that cannabis is a multibillion-dollar industry. Injustice can and does flow out of the criminal justice system, which is why I am volunteering with Cannabis Amnesty to assist with the development of their pardon clinic.
