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.
