Bill Summary

The act eliminates the marijuana possession offense for possession of 2 ounces of marijuana or less.

The act raises the limit for illegal possession of marijuana by an underage person from one ounce of marijuana or less to 2 ounces of marijuana or less.

The act requires the court to seal a conviction record, without opportunity for the district attorney to object, for a marijuana possession offense that is otherwise not sealed, if the person files documents with the court that the person has not been convicted of a criminal offense since the final disposition of all criminal proceedings or release from supervision, whichever is later.

The act allows a person who was convicted of a class 3 felony marijuana cultivation offense to petition to have his or her conviction record sealed.
