Marijuana Expungement Bill To Be Introduced In Virginia

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

virginia medical marijuanaThe ‘marijuana scarlet letter’ is a very real thing. I have many friends who have been effectively boxed out of many things that many people take for granted – employment, financial aid for college, housing, and many, many other things. All because they were caught one time with a plant that is 114 times safer than alcohol. Wherever they go, their marijuana conviction is sure to follow. That is unfair, and obviously can ruin people’s lives.

That’s why activists push for expungement bills, even in states where marijuana is now legal. Wherever there are citizens with marijuana convictions, activists should be pushing for that type of reform. It sounds like there will be an expungement bill introduced in Virginia during the upcoming session. Per the Daily Press:

A key Senate Republican said Thursday that he’ll back legislation that would allow young people to seek expungement of alcohol and marijuana convictions.

State Sen. Ryan McDougle, chairman of the Senate Republican Caucus, said the bill will be one of a few criminal justice reform measures likely to move in the coming legislative session, which begins next month. He said people under 21 should be given a shot at expungement to improve their employment options.

The legislation would deal with simple possession cases, not selling marijuana. McDougle, a former prosecutor, said there’s no method for expungement now.

Senators to go to Colorado to explore legal marijuana state

Category: News | Posted on Sun, December, 6th 2015 by THCFinder

BOSTON — When it comes to understanding marijuana policy and its potential implications for Massachusetts, some senators are willing to go a mile high for their work.

The Special Senate Committee on Marijuana, led by Winchester Democrat Sen. Jason Lewis, plans to travel to Colorado in January when they will spend a week exploring how that state regulates and controls the legal recreational use of marijuana.

 

Four states and the District of Columbia have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. Proponents behind a ballot question to legalize pot in Massachusetts appeared Wednesday to clear the first major signature hurdle to put the question before voters in 2016.

Senate President Stanley Rosenberg said during an interview on Boston Public Radio on Wednesday that Lewis’ committee, which now has 10 members, would be taking a “field trip to Colorado” to study the public policy impacts of legalizing the recreational use of the drug.

For months, the task force had been a committee of one, but Rosenberg said that once it became clear petitioners were likely to be successful in gathering enough signatures to put the question on the ballot next November more senators stepped up to participate and help with research.
