Marijuana Expungement Lawyers in Riverside

Former Deputy District Attorney on Your Side

Being convicted for possessing or carrying marijuana can have extremely devastating long-term consequences, even for those found with a minuscule amount, or those who simply happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. If you have been unjustly accused or unfairly burdened by harsh punishment, it could seem like your life is prematurely destroyed. Even after serving your sentence, your criminal record follows you everywhere.

Thankfully, however, you have the opportunity for a clean slate due to the amendment of Proposition 64. The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) has officially legalized marijuana in the state of California. If you have suffered from a previous conviction, that conviction can now be erased entirely. The process is complex and is most effectively handled with help from our marijuana expungement lawyers in Riverside.

The Law Offices of Grech & Packer are ready to serve you. Call us today at (951) 291-0105 so we can work toward clearing your record.

The Benefits of a Marijuana Expungement

There are many disadvantages of being tied down with a marijuana conviction. Not only do those who have been accused and tried for possessing or holding marijuana have to face huge fines and long bouts in jail, but they are forced to face terrible consequences after serving time as well.

You can lose out on opportunities to get a job, receive housing, conduct business, or even keep or establish friendships and relationships.

Once you have your criminal record expunged, or least reduced, however, then your conviction may be utterly erased from all records, and you can pursue the aspects of your former life as usual. It is important to note that this does not occur automatically – you need a skilled attorney to help you file for expungement.

Changes to Marijuana Laws

If you are wondering whether your specific conviction could be overturned, it is helpful to see some of the laws which have changed along with Proposition 64.

Some examples of changes concerning the adult use of marijuana since November 8, 2016 include:

  • Possessing 28.5 grams or less of marijuana (HS 11357), which used to be an infraction but now is legalized
  • Holding 8 grams or less of concentrated marijuana (HS 1135), which used to be a misdemeanor, but now is legalized
  • Growing and cultivating 6 or fewer marijuana plants (HS 11358) which used to be a felony, but now is legalized
  • Growing and cultivating more than 6 marijuana plants (HS 11358), which used to be a felony, but now is counted as a misdemeanor
  • Possessing marijuana that would be used for sale without a medical license (HS 11359), which used to be a felony, but now is counted as a misdemeanor
  • Transporting or selling marijuana without a license (HS 11360), which used to be a felony, but now is counted as a misdemeanor
