image for Canada to pardon citizens convicted on simple marijuana possession charges: report

The Canadian government is reportedly planning to grant pardons to Canadians with past minor marijuana possession charges.

Canada’s CTV News reported that officials will announce the plan on Wednesday, the day that recreational marijuana legalization goes into effect.

CTV reported that pardons will be granted to those with possession charges for 30 grams of marijuana or less.

The new legal recreational marijuana law allows for possession of that amount.

The government will reportedly not announce an intention to issue record expungements or grant amnesty for the cases.

Canadian lawmakers voted in June to legalize recreational marijuana nationwide, lifting a 95-year-old ban.

Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for nearly two decades. »
