Missouri: House Bill Seeks To Allow For Expungement of Past Marijuana Convictions

NORML | December 7, 2015

House legislation has been prefiled —HB 1524 — to allow marijuana convictions to be expunged contingent upon the passage of a constitutional amendment or other statutory enactment legalizing marijuana.

According to 2012 arrest data, Missouri police arrested some 18,500 people for minor marijuana possession offenses. These offenders, many of them young people, should not be saddled with a criminal record and the lifelong penalties and stigma associated with it.
