Six years after he was drafted in the first round with the 13th overall pick by the Miami Dolphins and one day before the first round of the 2022 NFL draft, Texans two-time Pro Bowl left offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil is minting an NFT: a non-fungible token with a portion of proceeds going toward the Last Prisoner Project.

The Last Prisoner Project is a charity founded in 2019 dedicated to cannabis criminal justice reform.

Tunsil, who has donated over $500,000 to charity since entering the NFL, discussed the incident in a statement.

“For the past 6 years, I've been asked about this moment, the gas mask, I've spent 6 years trying to do rather than say,. on the field and off the field," Tunsil said in a statement In the fall of 2021, I spoke with Complex for the first time about this moment and today, the day before #draftday, I'm officially moving on and putting this moment in the past.

"I'm minting a 1 of 1 NFT of the infamous gas mask video to be listed. A portion of the proceeds from the listing will benefit The Last Prisoner Project which supports those incarcerated for cannabis offenses.  I'm looking toward and excited for the future and am grateful for all of those that supported me on my draft night and those that have and will continue to support my journey!”
