I’m waiting on some California judge to rule that locking convicted criminals up is a violation of their rights
A Sacramento-based Third District Court of Appeals has overturned the 2017 conviction of five men who were caught with marijuana in their prison cells, after California passed Proposition 64 legalizing recreational use of the drug.
But that doesn’t mean inmates can light up joints while behind bars.
In his opinion, Presiding Justice Vance W. Raye said while state penal code prohibits smoking or eating marijuana while incarcerated it does not address possession. This would mean that inmates who are found to possess marijuana would not face additional charges on top of the ones they are serving.
