San Francisco to expunge, reduce thousands of pot convictions dating back to ’75

By Tanasia Kenney,

In an unprecedented move, San Francisco is set to expunge or reduce thousands of prior marijuana convictions dating back decades, District Attorney George Gascón announced Wednesday, Jan. 31.

The move, which will retroactively apply California’s pot-legalization laws to past criminal cases, will benefit thousands whose drug convictions resulted in criminal records that have the potential to hurt their chances of landing a job or even secure housing, the San Francisco Gate reported.
