The cannabis laws make no sense to me

My neighbor Gene just got out of jail.

He had been inside for multiple years, thanks to a charge of cannabis possession.

This is a bitter irony, because he 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 recognize Gene just had exhausting timing, because he lost years of his life to something that is no longer a crime. It should never have been a crime in the first locale, which is why I am encouraging Gene to get a lawyer plus sue the state. I know it’s enjoyable that cannabis is legal, but I still know the government plus the cops should pay for what they put Gene through. He had less than an ounce of cannabis on him at the time of his arrest, plus yet they still booked him for “intent to distribute.” In an even stranger turn of events, due to his past conviction Gene is not allowed to visit any cannabis dispensaries, and even though marijuana is legal now, he can’t avail himself of it. This country makes no sense periodically! I know Gene should have his cannabis conviction overturned, plus should also press the issue plus try to get a cash settlement out of this horrific ordeal, gene was the a single who got in trouble, but it just as certainly 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.
