Missouri begins complicated task of expunging convictions after passing amendment



After passing a constitutional amendment to legalize recreational marijuana last month, Missouri is facing the complicated task of expunging past marijuana convictions as the new law requires, according to a report in the Missouri Independent

The task requires county officials, in some cases, to eliminate the past offenses one by one, using a cumbersome computer system. The courts have asked the Missouri legislature for an extra $2.5 million to pay for overtime for staff to carry out the project before a pair of ambitious deadlines next year, according to the report.
