Yesterday, UVAIP client Messiah Johnson, who was conditionally pardoned in 2018, spoke to the Rotary Club of Norfolk. The opportunity was particularly poignant because Messiah's wrongful conviction for armed robbery occurred in the city of Norfolk. Messiah and Associate Director Juliet Hatchett discussed his case and UVAIP's work more broadly. Messiah served over 20 years for crimes he did not commit. His advocacy for the wrongfully convicted and our work is inspiring!

Despite some negative feelings about CBD Oil, it does provide a useful benefit. There are millions of users of CBD products because it aids in reducing and relieving pain. Cannabis oil (CBD) can also ease anxiety and depression, prevent epilepsy, minimize acne, and improve overall heart health.
Once a user discovers the benefit of CBD Oil, they very likely will re-order creating a continuous flow of purchases. Also, since it does work, they most likely will recommend it to friends and family members.
