VENTURA, Calif., Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Green Flower and Last Prisoner Project (LPP) are proud to announce a strategic partnership aimed at helping those most affected by the criminalization of cannabis establish legitimate careers in the legal cannabis industry.

Green Flower, the global leader in cannabis education, is donating $50,000 worth of scholarship funding to their best-in-class certificate courses for formerly incarcerated individuals participating in LPP’s Prison to Prosperity Reentry Program.

Last Prisoner Project’s program is focused on creating pathways to employment within the legal cannabis industry for individuals who have been negatively affected by the criminalization of cannabis.

“Last Prisoner Project is grateful for the support of our educational partner, Green Flower. The scholarships provided for our Prison to Prosperity Reentry Program will help to ensure that our constituents are primed for success for their professional roles in the cannabis industry,” said Mary Bailey, Managing Director of Last Prisoner Project.

Through this partnership, deserving students will gain in-demand skills and knowledge while setting themselves up for long-term success across the cannabis supply chain in areas such as cultivation, patient care, extraction, business, and more.

“Everyone understands it is not fair, right, or just that so many people are still being harshly persecuted for cannabis amidst the development of a new and blossoming industry across the country,” said Max Simon, CEO of Green Flower. “This is why LPP’s work is so critically important. We feel grateful to play a small part in helping right these wrongs and to provide much-needed education that will help victims of the ‘War on Drugs’ enter and succeed in this new cannabis economy.”

The ‘Hot Girl Summer’ rapper is set to fund two female students of colour for any degree across the world after a tough year following the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Taking to Instagram, she shared to her 16 million followers: “COLLEGE HOTTIES LISTEN UP BECAUSE THIS ONE IS FOR YOU … I AM GIVING AWAY TWO 10,000 DOLLAR SCHOLARSHIPS TO WOMEN OF COLOR PURSUING A DEGREE IN ANY FIELD OF STUDY IN ANY PART OF THE WORLD … APPLY RIGHT NOW LINK IN MY BIO #DONTSTOPSCHOLARSHIP … let’s get these degrees ladies (sic)”

And Megan later qualified just what she wanted to hear about from the hopefuls.

She added: “The essay for the scholarship should basically be about yourself, what you are majoring in, and why you need the degree! Doesn’t matter how many words or pages just do your best hotties!”

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old star recently revealed she hopes to inspire other women to realise their dreams and is determined to use her ever-growing platform to help inspire young girls around the world.

She said: “I love the fact that I have a voice, and I love the fact that I do inspire a lot of girls, and I didn’t realise it at first. I was just being me. Some of the things I say, I realised that some women might really wanna say them. So I just keep all of these things in the back of my mind when I’m writing. I’m not gon’ say I feel pressure, but sometimes I will get a little tingly because I just want to put out the best music for my fans as possible. I don’t like to disappoint them. So when I’m recording, I’m super hard on myself. I’m just always like, okay, I need to go harder than that. I’ll write and rewrite a verse about eight times.”
