On Tuesday, Aug. 7, Roger Christie was denied bail for the sixth time. He has been held without bail for over two years now under charges of distributing marijuana. Not murder--marijuana distribution.
The Green Party of Hawai'i does not know whether Christie is guilty of the charges against him. However, as we feel personal marijuana use should be decriminalized, we feel a person facing non-violent, marijuana-related charges should be granted bail.
