Los Angeles dismissed more than 60,000 marijuana convictions
Guys, it finally happened, at least it must have begun. We are beginning to witness countries that have legalized marijuana since then reverse and dismiss the convictions of marijuana that were unfairly committed during the war on drugs. The fact that many people are currently in jail for things that are completely legal in many places confuses me. Previous marijuana laws are not only a bit strange, but they have also been shown to have a greater impact on certain races than others, especially after being sentenced for possession of small amounts of marijuana. The idea that many of these allegations will be dismissed means a lot to anyone who has been unfairly imprisoned. Anyway, I’m so excited, let’s take a look at what this means not only to the people of Los Angeles, but to the whole world and the cannabis industry.
This is not the first batch of dismissal cases. Last year, it was planned to overturn 66,000 cases and allow them to freely leave prison without the convictions and life-long troubles. This was before Proposition 64 was passed into law. Although all these cases come from data from the Department of Justice, the data does not cover any of the thousands of cases recorded in Los Angeles County courts. These records date back more than 30 years, and there are countless cases that need to be reviewed.
Proposition 64 is a proposal to legalize Los Angeles weeds, and many people believe that this is not its sole purpose. In fact, the purpose of the proponents of this bill is not just to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Since the early 1900s, marijuana has been used by the racist system as an unjust tool to impoverish certain groups. Mainly because if you go to jail for a very small amount of marijuana charges, especially the charges that some other people will not be found guilty, the time after imprisonment will be very difficult. With a conviction record, it is almost impossible to find a job or housing. Lynn Lehman, the former director of the Drug Policy Coalition, said,
“Proposition 64 has always been more than just legal weeds. It is a conscious effort to repair the harm of past drug and marijuana ban wars, which disproportionately targeted people of color.”
The proposal was made to allow those unjustly imprisoned by previous cannabis laws to walk freely without being convicted. Even before the proposal was passed, George Gascón, who was in charge of all of this, as San Francisco’s top prosecutor, overturned 9,000 cases.
Although this large list has been compiled, it is believed that there are countless cases eligible for dismissal. In order to better identify those who are eligible for release and dismissal, Gascon partnered with a large American technology company. They developed an algorithm to identify people currently in jail for crimes that are no longer valid.
What does this mean on a larger scale?
Therefore, many states in the United States have legalized marijuana. Hope that over time, this number will only become higher. This is great not only for the pharmaceutical industry, the economy, and small businesses, but also for breaking the inherent drug-racist war. The fear of marijuana in the United States began in the 1930s as a way to arrest people of color and make them enemies. This brings countless lies about drugs. It makes people violent. People of color smoke and then rape white women. This is related to Satanism. If you want to learn more, please read my previous article on the origins of cannabis races. We now know that marijuana does not make people violent, just like a pug wins the longest muzzle contest. So we have reached the point where politicians and the government agree that marijuana is safe, so this large-scale change of faith shows that we are beginning to work hard to break the racial stigma that comes with it. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that systemic racism in the United States is over, far from it. However, releasing those who are no longer considered crimes and may be convicted because of race is a good start.
Staying away from race for the time being, releasing cannabis criminals is a huge boon for the American prison system. A system that is currently so overwhelmed that the people in it are treated like animals. Freeing these people will reduce the huge burden on the system, which is needed now more than ever.
I think it is important to let us look at the final prisoner plan. A group dedicated entirely to reformulating drug policy and combating criminal injustice. They believe that no one should be imprisoned for marijuana crime. Therefore, they created a team of cannabis industry leaders, policy and education experts, criminal and social justice advocates, and social justice and drug policy reform leaders. You can learn all of their information by visiting their website, but they are one of the leaders working to release people imprisoned for marijuana crimes.
Finally, the new crown
The last problem here is that during the pandemic, the prison system was overcrowded so that Covid 19 spread like wildfire. Not only have hundreds of thousands of people been wrongly imprisoned, but they are all exposed to this potentially deadly virus. Now more than ever, we are pushing to correct the severely damaged U.S. prison system and release those convicted of minor cannabis crimes, while in the same state, business owners earn money from cannabis and cannabis-related products. One million U.S. dollars.
