When Proposition 64 passed, prison doors began opening for those inside for marijuana offenses. Those charged with cannabis related crimes now may never sit behind bars. An article today in the San Francisco Chronicle online delves into the post Prop. 64 world.
According to the article,
California judges are now setting free scores of people whose pending cases are no longer cases at all.

And potentially tens of thousands of citizens with a rap sheet for pot can clear their names.
