Arizona voters recently passed sweeping legalization of marijuana. With the passage of Proposition 207, it allows anyone over the age of 21 to possess and use recreational marijuana.
Between the freedom to now use marijuana and the potential tax revenue collected for public works, many are pleased with this change in the law.
WHAT IF I WAS CONVICTED OF POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA BACK WHEN IT WAS ILLEGAL?
Great News! If you have been convicted of marijuana in the state of Arizona for use and possession, back when it was not legal, you should contact one of our Chandler marijuana expungement lawyers to help you apply for a complete expungement of your previous criminal conviction through the Courts.
If approved by the Court, your original conviction would be completely expunged/sealed (deleted from criminal record) with help from our experienced attorneys.
That’s right, your conviction would be sealed so it would act as a complete expungement. This is a huge opportunity and avoid having this come up on future work backgrounds, etc.
Is my Marijuana Conviction Eligible for the Expungement?
Under (A.R.S. § 36-2862) some people can petition a court for an order that will seal their marijuana-related criminal records. Eligible people are those who were arrested, charged, convicted or acquitted of any of the following offenses:
Possessing, consuming, or transporting two and one-half ounces or less of marijuana, of which not more than twelve and one-half grams was in the form of marijuana concentrate;
Possessing, transporting, cultivating, or processing not more than six marijuana plants at your primary residence for personal use; or
Possessing, using, or transporting paraphernalia related to the cultivation, manufacture, processing, or consumption of marijuana.
Contact our local attorneys to discuss whether you could get your marijuana conviction expunged.
