With the legalization of marijuana and changes to criminal record laws in Michigan, many weed convictions are eligible for expungement.

Many offenses have a waiting period before they can be removed. However, misdemeanor marijuana convictions involving behavior that is now legal, such as possessing marijuana can be expunged now.
