California prisoners can possess pot but not consume it, appeals court rules

California inmates can now possess marijuana without facing legal consequences from the state’s health and safety code as long as they don’t consume it, thanks to a new appeals court ruling.

The 3rd District Court of Appeal overturned criminal convictions of five Sacramento defendants who had been caught with marijuana in their prison cells. The 20-page ruling says, “Consumption, not possession, is the act voters determined should remain criminalized if the user is in prison.”

California inmates are now free to possess marijuana without fear of legal consequences by the state, thanks to a new appeals court ruling. But there are caveats.

Despite an emphasis on inmate rehab, California recidivism rate is ‘stubbornly high’

“State auditors said poor administrative practices resulted in 62% of 24,000 inmates leaving state prisons without having those needs met in fiscal year 2017. And recidivism, the rate at which people commit a subsequent crime within three years out of custody, has remained “stubbornly high,” according to the audit — averaging 50% over the past decade — even as the state inmate population has dropped.” - Today’s LA Times, by Jazmine Ulloa
