Q: So i had a curious question and would like input from others. If someone went to jail for life for marijuana, not like smuggling or something major, and then at some point the laws for it changed would that person get another trial to be released? Just i thought i had from looking at a different post. So opinions?

A: In most cases, a person is seldom, if ever, sentenced to "life" for marijuana or any drug offense for that matter. However, if a person is incarcerated on a charge and then a few years later the "law" changes, I would imagine that an attorney could assist is having the issues resolved and possibly the sentence reduced. That would be more of an "ask an attorney" question

Got a question?

From my understanding as to what is happening in Colorado, the charges for the crime that no longer exist create a situation of which the person, after the bureaucracies settle, are released due to no crime has been committed after the crime is absolved. Once marijuana became legal, which meant that crimes based on that law were removed, and thus void the judges determination. Other crimes however, could keep you in jail even after that fact. Such as committing crimes will being held, or other crimes committed in the process of.
