Polis previously pardoned those convicted of possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, but lawmakers in 2021 raised the legal possession limit of marijuana from one to two ounces.

Those receiving the pardons did not need to apply and do not need to act further to clear their criminal record.

“Adults can legally possess marijuana in Colorado, just as they can beer or wine,” Polis said in a news release announcing the pardons.

Polis noted in his letter issuing the pardon that many low-level marijuana possession charges are filed as municipal offenses, which he does not have the authority to pardon.

Polis also pardoned 15 people convicted of other crimes who served their sentences for crimes, including burglary, assault and arson.

Polis wrote that Wells’ max sentence would be 32 years if he were sentenced under current state laws.
