Marijuana Conviction Expungement
On November 3, 2020, the Citizens of Arizona voted to approve the Smart & Safe Arizona Act, legalizing marijuana for recreational use. The new law allows individuals who have past convictions to petition the court to have their criminal records expunged beginning July 12, 2021, if the charges were for marijuana-related activities which are no longer illegal.
Going forward, adults over the age of 21 will be legally able to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana, and/or cultivate up to six plants at their residence for personal use. If you have a criminal record for a conviction in Arizona as a consequence from engaging in similar behavior, you may be eligible for expungement.
