    Luke Scarmazzzo
    Glass House Social Justice Brand Ambassador
    Luke Scarmazzo cofounded one of the nation’s first licensed medical cannabis dispensaries in California in late 2004. He successfully operated his business until September 2006 when he was arrested by federal drug agents. Although his business was completely legal in California he was charged with violating federal drug laws and later sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    He served nearly 15 years fighting for justice before finally being granted an early release on February 3, 2023, impart due to the changes in the legal landscape surrounding cannabis laws. He now works as a Justice Ambassador for Glass House Brands and collaborates closely with “Reeform” and criminal and social justice organizations nationwide to advocate for those who are still incarcerated for cannabis offenses and reform federal drug laws.
