Free Antonio Bascaro, the Longest Serving Pot Prisoner in the US
Meet Antonio E.Bascaró, an 80-year-old grandfather with an unblemished record of good behavior in prison. He has been locked up since Feb. 21, 1980 — except for 45 days on bond during his 1982 trial — for nothing but marijuana.
No violence. No cocaine. No previous criminal record.
Antonio will enter his 35th year of imprisonment in April. He is scheduled for release June 8, 2019.
If Antonio was a violent “new law” offender, he would meet the Bureau of Prisons’ “compassionate release” standard of being 70 years old and having served 30 years. But he is an “old law” offender who didn’t hurt anyone, so, in a legal system that can’t shoot straight, he must remain behind bars. Too old, too harmless, not violent enough to be released.
