My neighbor Gene just got out of jail.
- She had been inside for six years, thanks to a charge of cannabis possession.
This is a bitter irony, because she was released to a world that has decriminalized weed possession. While it is only legal to sell marijuana in dispensaries, the possession of it is no longer a felony. I guess Gene just had terrible timing, because she lost years of her life to something that is no longer a crime. It should never have been a crime in the first site, which is why I am encouraging Gene to get a lawyer plus sue the state. I guess it’s fantastic that cannabis is legal, but I still guess the government plus the cops should spend my savings for what they put Gene through. She had less than an ounce of cannabis on him at the time of her arrest, plus yet they still booked him for “intent to distribute.” In an even stranger turn of events, due to her past conviction Gene is not allowed to visit any cannabis dispensaries, and even though marijuana is legal now, she can’t avail himself of it. This country makes no sense occasionally! I know Gene should have her cannabis conviction overturned, plus should also press the issue plus try to get a cash settlement out of this horrific ordeal, but gene was the a single who got in trouble, but it just as actually could have been me because I used cannabis every day long before it was legalized. I’m starting an online campaign called Justice for Gene.
