The state of Oregon, long in the lead in the production and decriminalization of marijuana, now “allows anyone with a lowest-level felony, misdemeanor or nontraffic violation to wipe the slate clean if 10 years or longer has gone by without another conviction” (NYT). That means the vast majority of pot convictions can now be expunged from one’s record, and “Starting next year, more serious felony marijuana convictions of the past, like manufacturing, will be eligible for record sealing as well.”
