Will California now change its name to Drugfornia?
In July of 2013, a Federal judge ordered that California must find a way of relief for California prisons. This order had Governor Jerry Brown fuming mad, but as of the recent election, the Feds win.
California voters just agreed on the release of all non violent drug offenders throughout the State.
This will mean that the huge heroin dealer will not see prison as long as he/she is not violent. This whole situation has many people like Stephen Williams (wine reseller) wondering what will happen in the State of California.
This vote will save the taxpayers a lot of money. It is estimated that approximately 10,000 people could be released from prison, and there will be 40,000 fewer felony drug convictions yearly.
