New Jersey Lawmakers Advance Expedited Cannabis Expungement Legislation

Members of the Senate and Assembly on Monday advanced legislation to the Governor’s desk facilitating the expungement process for those with past marijuana convictions.

Senate Bill 3205 revises the state’s expungement procedures. Specifically, it expands the pool of crimes eligible for expungement and it establishes an expedited process for those with minor marijuana offenses to petition the court to have their records vacated.

Lawmakers advanced the bill on the same day that NORML staff hosted a rally and lobby day at the state capitol. Legislators did not take any further action on separate legislation to expand the state’s medical cannabis access program or to decriminalize minor marijuana possession offenses.
