Another notable event for 2017 in California is Prop. 64, Marijuana Legalization Law, which legalized under California law, for adults 21 and over for recreational use: possession, transportation, purchasing, obtaining, and giving away to another adult of up to 28.5 grams of marijuana and up to 8 grams of concentrated cannabis.

Voters also approved Prop 57 making several significant changes to the criminal justice system in the area of Adult Criminal Sentences and Juvenile Criminal Proceedings and Sentencing.

  • California law now allows parole consideration for persons convicted of nonviolent felonies upon completion of full prison term for primary offense.
  • The new law also requires the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to adopt regulations to implement new parole and sentence credit provisions and certify they enhance public safety.
  • Voters approved a significant change to California juvenile law and sentencing by giving the final authority to juvenile court judges to determine whether juveniles age 14 and older should be prosecuted and sentenced as adults, rather than allowing prosecutors the unfettered discretion of filing the case directly in adult court.
