Bill would reduce those serving Marijuana sentences

LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - People in jail on marijuana charges would get a second chance under a bill just introduced in the State House.

The legislation would reduce prison, parole, and probation sentences of people convicted of possessing pot.

In order for a reduction to be considered some steps would have to be met.

The bill's sponsor says there's no reason to keep these non-violent criminals locked up especially since they wouldn't be arrested for the same thing now that recreational marijuana is legal.
