Legislation proposed to cut sentences for marijuana crimes

Legislation has been proposed to give a second chance to people convicted of some marijuana-related crimes prior to Michigan’s legalization of recreational marijuana.

Introduced by Sen. Sylvia Santana, a Democrat representing Detroit, Senate Bills 262-265 would reduce prison, parole or probation sentences for people jailed for marijuana possession.

“After the passage of Proposal 1, it’s time we rethink drug sentencing laws in Michigan, so let’s start with marijuana offenses, since those are no longer considered crimes under current law,” Santana stated in a news release.
