Governor Pence to sign Bill Increasing Penalties For Marijuana

The increased penalties come as part of an overhaul of Indiana's criminal sentencing laws; possession of anything over about one-third of an ounce of marijuana is now a felony in Indiana. Pence said last week that he believed the bill would "send a message that the state is "tough on drug dealers."

Another part of the new law would require that felons -- which, of course, now include low-level pot possession defendants -- serve at least 75 percent of their sentences, up from the 50 percent or less that inmates might now serve if they earn good time and education credits while in prison.

Well there are a lot of old people who will be facing jail. One of the things that they suggested I do doing treatment is use Marijuana. But look, If I go to jail I can not draw social security or medicare. So it will be at there cost to continue expensive cancer treatments.:)
