Keep the momentum going and push for legislation to allow expungements for people with marijuana related criminal records.
Michigan voters on Tuesday November 6, 2018 approved Proposal 1 to legalize recreational marijuana. 10 days after the election results are certified, which should be by early December. Adults will no longer be arrested or have their belongings taken for simple possession and use of marijuana.
There is a bill pending in the Legislature to require judges to consider expunging the records of people convicted of many misdemeanor marijuana offenses that will no longer be crimes under the marijuana legalization.
The new governor Gretchen Whitmer — also could consider pardoning some criminal offenders. She has said she would favor some sort of expungement for low-level marijuana offenses.
In other states where legalization has passed, California, Colorado, Maryland, New Hampshire and Oregon have taken steps to make it easier for people to get their convictions sealed or expunged.
