Do you need an attorney experienced in Prop 64 Marijuana Expungement cases?
Your Marijuana Conviction Can Likely Be Expunged
A marijuana conviction can deprive you of potential employment, housing, business opportunities, and relationships, among other things. If you have been convicted of a marijuana crime, you likely have the opportunity to clean up your record. Under Proposition 64, The Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) virtually legalizes marijuana in California. Therefore, individuals previously convicted of marijuana crimes can have their convictions reduced or entirely expunged. Although marijuana has essentially become decriminalized, individuals convicted of marijuana crimes must file an expungement with a Marijuana Expungement Attorney in order to effectively clean up their record.
For example, if you faced a felony or marijuana marijuana conviction, you likely have the opportunity to have your conviction completely erased from your record. An expunged or reduced conviction will greatly benefit and improve all aspects of your life. After your conviction is expunged, all of your civil rights will be restored, including your right to own a firearm. Your case will be handled from beginning to end by one attorney that is only a phone call away.
Pride Legal’s California Expungement Attorneys are heavily experienced in reducing felony or misdemeanor convictions under Prop 64, and always at a low rate. After your conviction is expunged, all of your civil rights will be restored, including your right to own a firearm. Your case will be handled from beginning to end by one attorney that is only a phone call away.
We’ll take care of your expungement process from beginning to end. That means you won’t be needing to worry about lengthy documents, court meetings, or much more!
Do You Need to Have Multiple Marijuana Cases Expunged?
If you have multiple marijuana convictions, Pride Legal will evaluate your situation and speak with you about your options. Most individuals who have been convicted of multiple marijuana crimes are almost always pleased with the outcome Pride Legal presents.

- Possession of 8 grams of concentrated or less (HS 1135): previously a misdemeanor, now legal

- Cultivation of more than 6 plants (HS 11358): previously a felony, now a misdemeanor

Will my marijuana conviction eventually disappear on its own?
Individuals previously convicted of marijuana crimes often believe their marijuana convictions will eventually be automatically erased. This is not true! In order to have your felony conviction, you must file a petition for expungement through an Expungement Attorney.
Will my petition for expungement be granted?
Your marijuana expungement is completely at the judge or district attorney’s discretion, so always be composed, respectful, and polite in any legal setting.
If your conviction is eligible for an expungement, a judge will most likely grant reduction relief. After your felony has been reduced to a misdemeanor, many of your civil liberties will be restored. These civil liberties include California gun rights.
Contrary to popular belief, being convicted of a felony does not deprive your right to vote. Individuals convicted of felonies are only unable if they are incarcerated or on active parole during an election.
After reducing the felony to a misdemeanor, you may be eligible to petition for a complete expungement under Penal Code section 1203.4.

No. After 30 days of your expungement being granted, all criminal background checking websites and platforms will be updated to present your accurate, up-to-date criminal record.
