Comments

On the Marihuana Violation Sentence Reduction Act of 2019: 

“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,” Sen. Santana said...“The times have changed, and it’s time our laws do too,” Sen. Santana said. “There is no reason we should keep these non-violent offenders locked up, especially if they wouldn’t be arrested and imprisoned for the same thing now.” 4/12/19
