    SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A California appeals court says it's legal to have small amounts of marijuana in prison - so long as inmates don't inhale.

    The 3rd District Court of Appeal ruled that California voters legalized recreational possession of less than an ounce (28 grams) of cannabis in 2016, with no exception even for those behind bars.

        Prison is not supposed to be a place of recreation. One wonders if the Judge were high when they came up with this "ruling."

          Is there an exception in the law that legalized alcohol? I would doubt there is and they don’t let prisoners have that either.

            You care because....?

            This says a lot about CA. I don't understand y'all. Never will. Y'all have awesome weather and that is it. It's almost a different country.

                I think they should put percocet in the morning oatmeal.

                  I already have been. But that was just for a day. I wish I had weed while I was in there.

                    Maybe weed will help the prisoners rehabilitate. I think this is an amazing ruling.

                          Should they have liquor, too? How about guns?

                            Agree, let them thin their own ranks. Save the money.

                            It may actually be that on balance weed would cause prisoners to be more docile. If so, I'm all for it.

                              I'd take it one step further and have the entire prison population on a daily regimen of benzodiazepines.
