States Legalizing Marijuana Now Considering Allowing Expungement of Past Marijuana Convictions

With numerous States having legalized marijuana, some of those States have begun to consider allowing the expungement of past marijuana convictions.  In one example, in Oregon a State Representative has proposed a bill that would provide for reduction of sentences for people currently serving time for nonviolent marijuana offenses as well as make it easier to expunge marijuana related offenses from their criminal records.  The article below provides greater detail regarding the situation in Oregon.  Clearly, other States will soon need to address similar issues as the legalization of marijuana continues throughout the country.
