Did y’all hear about this?! I didn’t hear about this! You heard about this?! I just heard about this! San Francisco District Attorney George Cascon
has sought out the services of a non-profit tech company called Code for America to help him reduce the number of folks who get a felony charge because of their love of smoking trees. Code for America
is writing a computer code that will identify folks, under the felony classification, who can have their convictions reclassified as a misdemeanor.
Mind you, this just applies to folks
who like to smoke trees and not those who love tasting, snorting that cocaine and or methamphetamine.
About two-years ago, Californians passed Proposition 64
which made it legal for folks who are of cigarette smoking age to smoke Mary J for fun.
Back in January of this year, Cascon
decided to get rid of over 3,000 “misdemeanor marijuana convictions” that go 43-years back to 1975.
Cascon was like, “Hey, I’ma just be blunt about this. Charging people for smoking weed creates a lot of paperwork that I sooo don’t want my secretaries and paralegals to keep doing. So from henceforth, we’ll turn both cheeks whenever someone is smoking weed. All other crimes will get our full attention!”
Before I forget, not everybody can get a reclassification. Under the Proposition 64 law
, real violent criminals just have to live with the felony classification.
Therefore, if a person hasn’t done anything really, really, really bad like trying to beat the hell out of somebody for no good reason, trying to kill somebody, and or raping somebody, then they can get a reclassification.
