Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, has introduced legislation this week that would require county courts in California to expunge eligible records of marijuana convictions.

Voters approved the ability to wipe criminal marijuana conviction records as part of Proposition 64 back in 2016.

According to data in the state, around 5,000 people by September 2017 had applied to change their records, but there are many more that are not aware of the option.

The bill introduced by Bonta would β€œgive folks who deserve it under the law the fresh start they’re entitled to,” according to the Assemblyman.

It was on January 1st that marijuana became legal for recreational sale in the state.
