It would also expunge the conviction of anyone previously found guilty of simple possession of marijuana if it was the only charge in the case. Anyone currently held in a state prison or local jail for a cannabis conviction would be resentenced to end their term of incarceration.
The bill addresses criminal justice and public health issues, while also building a foundation for social equity in the industry.
The voters will decided if this bill passes in November.
