It’s expungement time for your old conviction for growing marijuana.
When the legislature legalized marijuana, they also changed Oregon’s expungement law. This change allows for expungement of convictions for growing marijuana. Before these changes, MCS Marijuana was a class A felony and was not eligible for expungement.
While the new law has been in effect for a while now, I still hear from a many people who aren’t aware of the changes. I have met a lot of good people who don’t deserve to be labeled felons. They have lost out on jobs, promotions, and housing just because they grew marijuana. I have also talked with people who have felony convictions from the 1970s and 1980s. They assumed that the convictions were so old they wouldn’t appear on criminal background checks. Criminal background checks now go much further back in time than they used to, so it’s a good idea to have all convictions and arrests expunged – no matter how old they are.
Shortly after the law allowing for MCS expungements went into effect, I argued the issue in multiple courts throughout the state and educated judges and District Attorneys on this very important change in the expungement laws regarding marijuana cases. I am happy to report that I have helped hundreds of former recreational marijuana growers clear their records.
If you have a conviction for MCS, DCS, or possession of marijuana, I urge you to call me to discuss your case. Let’s get your record cleared so you can move on with your life.
