Learning more about citizen concerns is what we do to understanding all sides of a topic. Last night's discussion was very informative not just about cannabis policy but the long term effects of convictions under prior law and what is legal now. Hearing from other candidates and experts helps us stay informed.
Keep an eye out, will be posting a link for the town hall meeting recording soon!
Sherry noted "I checked on the 7 communities in my district for how it stands in them. 'The new Expungement law is too little and not going to take effect for 2 1/2 yrs. In my opinion, in her first 30 days, Gov. Whitmer should have released those in for charges now not illegal under Michigan law.' And I think those that have been kept in after the law came into effect need to be compensated. When Rev. Pinkney's conviction was overturned, he got $1000 for every month that he was in prison. We hope to have those who led the fight for legalization in the Town Hall to tell me what I need to work for in Lansing as a legislator."
Potential, that what we have, POTENTIAL! For that potential to be acted upon, we need to support and elect people who are driven by values, not self-interest. The 10-minute spot below is all about that potential with the Green Party! See what they have to say and then VOTE GREEN!
Sherry shares some thought about marijuana and how if affects many with minor offenses, especially in our black communities.
"When I was in law school, many white fellow students were scurrying to get their single marijuana charge expunged. I understand that that is still going on, decades later. We know that young blacks were sent to prison."
"I am disappointed that within her first 30 days that Gov. Whitmer did not pardon everyone in prison for marijuana-related offenses that no longer violate Michigan law." "The new expungement law is inadequate, and not only for marijuana convictions."
