Sneaking in Silence-Ep2 with Adam Vine

Adam followed a moral calling toward helping those who have been harmed by the war on drugs. The perfect inspiration for a show about collective action.

Adam Vine co-founded Cage-Free Cannabis to repair harms of the War on Drugs and advocate for an equitable cannabis industry. This project emerges from a career spent at the intersection of social justice, media, and politics. Since launching Cage-Free Cannabis, Adam has provided cannabis policy recommendations to the City and the County of Los Angeles, as well as to a statewide cannabis policy roundtable. The Cage-Free project has so far supported re-entry programs for formerly incarcerated women, youth organizing in Central American immigrant communities, and expungement, job, and resource fairs.

Adam also edits At The Intersection, a weekly newsletter about the collisions between culture, race, and politics. He has a B.A. in English from Amherst College and an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and he lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
