Attorney Paul Loney with Loney Law Group interviewed by the American Bar Association for an article on expungements
Oregon is the only state to have taken the next logical step in the misplaced war on cannabis: permitting its citizens to expunge convictions for past marijuana crimes, offenses that would be not be crimes today.
In 2015’s Senate Bill 364, the Oregon legislature expanded eligibility for setting aside criminal judgments to include marijuana-growing convictions. Prior criminal conviction may be a obstacle to application for an OLCC marijuana license; the expungement expansion allows for manufacturing convictions (of growing marijuana) to be set aside, potentially clearing the path for legal cannabis production for an individual.
