The California Supreme Court overturned a 2019 lower court ruling that allowed incarcerated people to possess up to an ounce of cannabis
This sounds weird, I know.
But apparently, when California legalized recreational cannabis use through Proposition 64, the legal language specified that the possession of less than one ounce of cannabis in prison was not a felony.
Most voters were likely unaware that they were voting for prisoners to have cannabis in jail when they voted on Prop 64.
Back in 2019, there was a case where 5 inmates were caught with cannabis in their cells and given additional higher sentences.
This case was overturned and it effectively made the possession of cannabis in prison no longer a felony as long as it wasn’t being consumed.
The ruling was immediately challenged by the state’s Attorney General’s office, however, due to delays because of COVID, the case just now went before the California Supreme Court.
And the state Supreme Court finally clarified in their decision that the language in Prop 64 did not extend to inmates.
Members of the new Alabama Medical Cannabis Commission formally met for the first time last week.
Alabama Governor Kay Ivey told the commission, “It will be up to you, those who have been appointed by many elected leaders around the state, to establish a criteria for medical cannabis production in Alabama.”
The Commission must have a program in place to certify physicians to recommend medical cannabis by Jan 2022.
The group plans to meet at least once a month until the program gets up and running and has A LOT on its to-do list.
All cannabis must be grown in the state which means that the commission also has to issue licenses to cultivators and processors by April to be on time for the planting season.
Dr. Steven Stokes, the chairman of the commission stated that he was once very skeptical of cannabis until he began working in it with cancer patients.
We wish the commission the best of luck as they develop the cannabis laws that will help the citizens of Alabama.
