    San Francisco will clear the convictions of thousands of people who were charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana dating back to 1975.

    The District Attorney’s office said it will review, recall and re-sentence as many as 4,940 felony marijuana convictions, in addition to dismissing 3,038 misdemeanors.

    “While drug policy on the federal level is going backwards, San Francisco is once again taking the lead to undo the damage that this country’s disastrous, failed drug war has had on our nation and on communities of color in particular,” San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement on Wednesday.

    Proposition 64 includes a provision allowing people convicted of marijuana-related crimes to petition to have their convictions cleared or reduced, but Gascón said San Francisco will begin the process without people having to take any action.

    I had a dream that even Truck drivers will someday find their own freedoms on their own time off.

    We could use some of our Trump Tax Law refund money to buy weed if we wanted to.

    Sounds like the new Democrat platform. You should copyright that before someone else does.

    It's high time to start putting California officials in prison if they don't want to follow federal laws. We once had a civil war over such issues.

    What the 60's and 70's were about is speaking up against government control which so many now think is normal.
    Very sad
