So do the people in jail for possession, or the people with possesion charges on their record get released or the charges removed from their record?? Im not talking drug dealers, just remedial marijuana convictions.

It's still a federal crime so they are saying it might not hold up.

Only if they made the law retroactive, and like Kerry said, the feds are going to cry and whine and stomp their feet for a while until they get their way.

they just need to reclassify it federally to a schedule 3 drug instead of schedule 1 and tax the shit and get it over with and move focus on issues in this country that are truely important instead of wasting millions of dollars fighting somthing we will never win.

This.

I am sick of hearing about it. I never have nor will i ever partake in the use of the stuff but i can see no logical reason why they should not legalize it, tax the shit out of it like they do cigarettes and move on with other truly pressing issues

there is too much money being given to Washington by big tobacco, big pharma and the alcohol people to ever let this pass on a country wide scale.
But i agree, regulate it and reap the tax $$, just like alcohol.

and dont forget GR

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- It appears the decriminalization of marijuana will happen in Grand Rapids.

With almost all precincts reporting, nearly 60 percent of voters approved making possessing marijuana a civil infraction instead of a misdemeanor.

The ballot initiative was spearheaded by a group called "DecriminalizeGR", which collected more than 10,000 signatures to put a charter amendment on the city's November ballot. More than 200 supporters of Grand Rapids Proposal 2 gathered Tuesday night in Eastown to see the results.

Supporters of the proposal argue that decriminalizing marijuana will save Grand Rapids taxpayers an estimated $2.5 million in city and jail costs. They also claim the proposal will prevent young people from compiling a criminal record, and shrinking police forces will be able to focus their attention on more important matters

The federal government has already stopped prosecuting anything but LARGE amounts of MJ, MJ + other drugs like meth or coke, and high profile cases. Small seizures are either turned over to local law or, literally, the whole thing gets forgotten about
