California DAs meet July 1 deadline to clear hundreds of thousands of cannabis convictions
According to a report in the Ocean County Register, local counties in Southern California cleared nearly 200,000 cannabis convictions, meeting a July 1 deadline set in place by Proposition 64, the 2016 measure that legalized cannabis. The state’s 58 county district attorneys agreed with the bulk of the recommendations laid out before them, relieving tens of thousands of Californians of criminal records. Some had carried with them for years.
