#Roomies, I got some good news. Los Angeles County District Attorney, Jackie Lacey, just secured the dismissal of 66,000 marijuana convictions.
According to the Los Angeles Times,
“Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey on Thursday announced that she had secured the dismissal of 66,000 marijuana convictions in Los Angeles County, marking a major step in a growing national effort to undo the harsh effects of a decades-long drug war.”
Last week, Lacey filed a motion requesting Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge, Sam Ohta, to dismiss 62,000 felony convictions going as far back as 1961, and 4,000 misdemeanor convictions in 10 cities across the county. Her request was granted, according to reports.
