Questions Abound Regarding Status Of Recent Marijuana Convictions

102

The recent approval of the Cannabis Control Board’s Rules and Regulations has caused many constituents to question the status of those who are incarcerated or were previously incarcerated for marijuana use.

Attorney General Leevin T. Camacho reports that as far as he knows, no one is currently incarcerated in Guam for possession of marijuana, but many do have criminal records. This criminal record could interfere with a person’s ability to get employed.

In a NewsTalk K57 interview, Camacho said that it is ultimately the decision of the Guam Legislature to make those changes.

Currently, there is no word from the Legislature of any changes, said Camacho, but that is likely because the rules and regulations for the CCB have just been approved.
