  • Cannabis convictions pre-legalization to be overturned in Cali.

    Just needs Jerry Brown's sig and that's all.
    California lawmakers just passed a bill that could overturn pre-legalization marijuana convictions dating back to the 1970s.

    Nice, hope these folks learned a trade or sumpton in jail, like how to cook up some crack and maybe learn to sell heroin. Not much cash flow in weed these days, now that the government has cut into the biz.

      Now I have no idea where I could get illegal weed, and haven't for years.
      I quit smoking weed when I turned 30, and didn't start again until after it
      was legal for medicinal use, and I've always had a card.

        Some people will be released and some will just have shortened sentences, as they are serving time for multiple crimes, which is the norm for drug addicts. Recidivism rates are high and many will just end up back in prison for something else anyway.

          Legal pot is going to generate billions in new tax revenue for states. It's going to be a tax bonanza even for the feds who still characterize it as dangerous as smack.

            When I was at Boeing in about 2001, there was an engineer there who’s home, land and vehicles were seized by the state of Washington because he had something like 4 pot plants growing on his property (in addition of course to being jailed and losing hi job. Imagine how he feels now that it is legal there
            Thanks, and rock on!
