My buddy Gene just got out of jail.
He had been inside for 6 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 guess Gene just had awful 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 site, which is why I am encouraging Gene to get a lawyer as well as sue the state. I suppose it’s great that cannabis is legal, however I still suppose the government as well as 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, as well as 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 sometimes! I suppose Gene should have his cannabis conviction overturned, as well as should also press the issue as well as try to get a money settlement out of this horrific ordeal; Gene was the 1 who got in trouble, however it just as genuinely could have been myself and others because I used cannabis every afternoon long before it was legalized. I’m starting an online campaign called Justice for Gene.
