    Our friend Eddy Lepp has been released from prison, and is back in California. :clap:

    Although he is not free yet, he must stay in a half-way house, so I guess he's "half-way free."

    He served over 8 years of his 10-year sentence:

    So was this the result of Prop 64 or just a coincidence in terms of timing?

    This was a Federal charge, and Eddy was in a federal prison in Colorado. He was charged with a 10-year mandatory-minimum sentence, and they let him out after he was in for a little more than 8 years.

    Hopefully, we can work on freeing all those people who were locked up for growing flowers.

    i know here in Oregon they started wiping away convictions and letting people out of jail after we passed measure 91 , its a slow process,, but if they had no other crimes,, just MJ,,

    Cannabis remains federally illegal, sigh. So state legalization will not help anyone charged with a Federal crime.

    We have not met the threshold of states legalizing for the Feds to have to change. Once that happens other things can happen.

    What is the threshold? My understanding is even if all states legalized the feds could still refuse to deschedule. Only a constitutional amendment could actually force their hand (https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/constitution). That requires a 3/4 ratification as it's been done in the past or a 2/3 state call for constitutional convention. One would hope their government would be swayed by, the obvious, public opinion but sadly that isn't always so.

    Hopefully Trump will see the economic rewards.

    Actually, some federal prisoners WILL get out early because of Prop 64! It will happen in only certain situations like when a guy has some State charges that allowed the pigs to charge him federally, so he is in a Federal prison, but when the State charges are reduced, then he will get out early.
