Representatives of the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office have identified and dismissed several thousand past marijuana convictions, and reduced thousands of others to misdemeanors.

According to a Fox News analysis, officials dismissed nearly 2,000 low-level marijuana convictions. They also reduced over 3,300 past felony marijuana convictions to misdemeanors.

State lawmakers last year passed legislation, AB 1793, permitting the “automatic expungement or reduction of a prior cannabis conviction for an act that is not a crime as of January 1, 2017.”
