Arizona expunging only a small fraction of minor pot convictions; report receives high marks from Jonathan Udell, co-chair of Rose Law Group cannabis law department

By David Abbott | Phoenix New Times

One of the big selling points of Proposition 207, the citizens’ initiative that legalized adult-use recreational cannabis in 2020, was the prospect of clearing marijuana arrest records of citizens who have been caught up in the war on drugs.

Passage of Prop 207 meant that convictions for minor offenses can be eliminated and sealed. Those include possession of up to 2.5 ounces of flower, up to 12.5 grams of concentrate, or paraphernalia, or charges related to growing up to six plants for personal consumption.

On July 12, the state began accepting expungement petitions for an estimated 192,000 Arizonans.
