Missouri’s Marijuana Life Makes Parole
August 10, 2015

A Missouri man, once serving a life prison term for non violent marijuana convictions is getting out of jail soon.

The son of Jeff Mzanskey told ABC News 17 his father will soon be freed.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon commuted Mzanskey’s sentence earlier this year. He had a parole hearing earlier this month.

Mzanskey’s family says he could be freed from the maximum security facility in Jefferson City within a few days.

A statement from the Show-Me Cannabis group said it believes Mzanskey’s release was accelerated by the “strong support” for his release.
