I was interested in a law that I noticed they had passed in Muskegon, MI! I wasn’t sure if it was statewide, or just for Muskegon, but it made myself and others take notice.
I had study that MI passed a Clean Slate Law that would out date expungement laws, this is section of their expungement law is for those with marijuana offenses that are no longer illegal under the marijuana laws passed in 2018, and my brother lives in Muskegon, MI, although I live in another state that is still talking about legalizing recreational marijuana, but under the expungement law, you can ask the court to set aside your conviction if they arrested you for possession of marijuana, use of marijuana, or possession of marijuana paraphernalia, then you don’t have a waiting period to file for expungement of a marijuana conviction.
You don’t have a limit of how multiple marijuana convictions that are asked to be set aside. You must go to the court where your arrest occurs, plus they must hear your request for expungement, but once heard, the court can either agree plus dismiss all past charges plus take them off your record, or it can be sent to a unusual court. If you were arrested for possession with intent to sell plus plea bargained down to easy possession, you expungement may not go through because the prosecutor says you don’t qualify, but if all are easy arrests, you may no longer have marijuana charges on your arrest record, but as a teenager, I had several, plus it would be nice to have them taken off our otherwise perfect record.
