Arizona voters resoundingly passed Proposition 207 on Nov. 3, 2020. This law legalizes the recreational use of marijuana in Arizona by adults ages 21 and older. It also offers some important remedies to people who have certain types of marijuana charges, or convictions, removed from their records.
Prop 207 allows people to petition for their marijuana convictions to be expunged so that they will no longer appear on their criminal records. At the Shah Law Firm, attorney Arja Shah is prepared to help people to have their marijuana charges or convictions expunged.
Understanding Arizona Proposition 207 Expungement Provision
Proposition 207 adds a number of statutes to Arizona’s state laws. One of these statutes is A.R.S. § 36-2682, which states that people who have been arrested, convicted, or adjudicated for specific marijuana offenses to petition the court to have their records related to those offenses expunged. The eligible offenses include the following:
- Possession or consumption of two-and-one-half ounces or less of marijuana
- Cultivating, transporting, possessing, or processing six or fewer marijuana plants in a private home
- Possessing, transporting, or using drug paraphernalia that is associated with marijuana
Thousands of Arizonans have these types of convictions on their records and may benefit from petitioning the courts to have their records expunged.
