The Lady Lifers: A moving song from women in prison for life.  Published on May 15, 2015
The ten women in this chorus have all been sentenced to life in prison. They share a moving song about their experiences — one that reveals their hopes, regrets and fears. “I’m not an angel,” sings one, “but I’m not the devil.” Filmed at an independent TEDx event inside Muncy State Prison, it’s a rare and poignant look inside the world of people imprisoned with no hope of parole.

Lynette reminds us of the  HIV epidemic in this state and nation in the 1980s and 1990s and the arrests of HIV patients in hospital rooms just for possession of a couple of joints of marijuana to ease their pain and discomfort from the pharmaceuticals used to treat the auto-immune disease and its subsequent diseases from a compromised immune system.

Aaron Augustis of Veterans Cannabis Group in Marin County, California.
