On Tuesday the 3rd District Court of Appeal ruled that it’s legal for state inmates to possess less than an ounce of REC while in prison. There’s a catch. While it’s okay to hold, consumption and inhaling are not allowed.
- The ruling came as the three-person court overturned the Sacramento County convictions of five prisoners who were found to have been holding in their cells.
- “We want to be clear that drug use and sales within state prisons remains prohibited,” said corrections department spokeswoman Vicky Waters.
- The Attorney General’s office has not said whether it plans to appeal the decision.
- Eight people were arrested and plants worth an estimated $189M was seized after a gunshot-wounded man staggered into a police station. When he died, seven hundred officers from multiple jurisdictions were turned loose onto Riverside County grows. Some are calling law enforcement’s following raids excessive.
