Los Angeles County to dismiss nearly 66,000 marijuana convictions

LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey has dismissed nearly 66,000 marijuana convictions citing the need to bring relief to those disproportionately impacted by drug laws. Of the total, about 62,000 were felony cannabis convictions and 3,700 were misdemeanor possession convictions, some cases dating back to 1961. This comes ahead of a heated fight Lacey has in the March 3 primary election.

Retards in thread buying the meme that marijuana is harmless. Gee what combines the effect of alcohol on your ability to function with the effect of second hand smoke? This sounds like a brilliant idea.

Correct move. There should be no crime on the books that doesn't have a victim attached.
