Am I a criminal?

Hello:

It should come as no surprise that I have been convicted of criminal behavior..  But, the behavior I was convicted of, is now legal. 

So, 1) am I still a criminal?  2) Can I sue the government for false imprisonment?  3) Do I get my rights back?  4) Am I owed a public apology?  5)  What do we do about the people who're STILL in jail for that same behavior?

So, 1) am I still a criminal?

No, you have light skin and money.

2) Can I sue the government for false imprisonment?

No.

3) Do I get my rights back?

That depends if the government ever feels like removing them or violating them.

4) Am I owed a public apology?

No.

5) What do we do about the people who're STILL in jail for that same behavior?

The government isn't going to do shit. Have a nice day.

Well, you may not be a wonderful person but if the crime for which your were convicted years ago has now been legalized then, in my opinion you are no longer a criminal.

Well, in those former times you were a criminal because you knew it was against the law and you proceeded and kept doing it.

Today is different, and your current behavior is not against the law anymore, so your thinking is different as well, today you can do it freely.

It is the intention what it counts as well.
