Nevada County to Clear Hundreds of Marijuana Convictions
Hundreds of marijuana convictions going back to the 1970s are poised for dismissal in Nevada County, California. Some felony marijuana convictions will be reduced to misdemeanors.
The county’s district attorney filed the motion on June 24.
Proposition 64 allowed for the expungement of past marijuana convictions upon petition. A 2018 law requires counties to identify offenses eligible for automatic dismissal or reduction.
