so those that are in jail now for weed, do they get a retroactive pardon? just in time to add to the unemployment.

unintended consequences yet again. you never know how things will play out.

I highly doubt anyone gets pardoned, or has their record expunged. What they did was illegal by US and/or state law at the time of their arrest.

Don't get me wrong - I would be stoked if my three felonies were retroactively removed from my record, but I'm not holding out any realistic hope.

I think, if not released outright, non-violent marijuana offenders should be taken out of dangerous rapey prison and sent to minimum security institutions.

Good video. Honestly, I'm completely jaded to the whole situation. The data is overwhelming. It won't get fixed until the people that thought 'just say no' was a feasible solution die out.
