"Their letters motivate me to spread their plight far and wide and I am humbled by their tremendous encouragement, kindness and integrity in the midst of the death sentences they are facing for a miracle plant."

With all that she was gaining from the experience, it wasn’t long before Deedee was compelled to do more. Naturally, as friendships grew so did her desire to help.

Deedee and Jack

"The 68-year-old L.A. native is a throwback to the old days of marijuana activism, when wearing cannabis on your sleeve wasn't so trendy and the pot leaf symbolized defiance of authority rather than deference to the Green Rush. It was a time when the late Jack Herer (the namesake for the popular sativa strain) was still around to come by Kirkwood's for dinner. Back then, the cannabis community was a fraction of the size it is now.”

Deedee and Chelsea Sutula,

owner of Sespe Creek Collective

“Deedee (Kirkwood) was a blessing to me after I was raided and arrested. I’ll never forget her kindness and compassion during some of the darkest days of my life. She introduced me to some other people doing amazing work and told me all about her pen pal relationships with prisoners and her Pot Fairy line, which I loved. It was so inspiring and really helped put my recent troubles in perspective.”

Pot Lifer Museum at the Sespe Creek Collective in Ojai shines light on cannabis-related incarceration

WEB_Patrons-Browsing-Through-Pot-Lifers-

"The Pot Lifer Museum, located in a dedicated space at Sespe Creek Collective, showcases a dozen people serving life sentences for nonviolent cannabis crimes. Materials were sourced from the personal collection of Kirkwood — also known as the Pot Fairy — who has long been nurturing meaningful relationships with people serving these life sentences.  

On the back wall is a partial gallery of known pot lifers. Hanging from chains in the center of the room are booklets that tell a little bit about 11 of these inmates, including letters written from prison and media articles about them."
