New York FINALLY moves to reform Rockefeller laws.

New York, which has, for the past thirty years, had the harshest marijuana policies in the country, is finally softening the law.

A first felony bust will soon earn you 8 to 20 years, instead of 15 to life. Still outrageous, but undeniably better. I haven't gotten a chance to read the details of the bill, but hopefully some of the racist undertones of the Rockefeller laws were also changed.

All in all, a positive sign.

"That oughta shut em up. "

Now, how does this work? Does it affect the sentences of those already doing bids?

I'm curious as to what is going to happen to everyone that was sent to prison for lengthy sentences before the reform.

Some are up for consideration of sentence reduction. This is a purely cosmetic change.
