Weed crimes waived? State could forgive pot misdemeanors

A public hearing was held by the Subcommittee on General Government Feb. 25 and is now moving forward to a full House vote. The bill includes charges of possessing up to 40 grams, which would cancel out all misdemeanor charges. Felony charges of more than 40 grams will not be removed off a person’s record, according to the bill.
