Remember Proposition 36, otherwise known as the Three-Strikes Law, that California voters passed in 1994? Remember Proposition 36, which ensures a convict's third strike is for a "serious or violent" offense, that we voted in last November?

Wherever you read it, I was surprised that there are even more who have controlled substance possession for third strikes than I would have imagined.

The DA's office says it has received more than 80 petitions for re-sentencing under Prop 36.
