California Cities Drop Thousands of Marijuana Convictions

San Francisco and San Diego are moving to erase thousands of marijuana convictions en masse, which could be life-changing for some and helpful, especially, to minorities.
 
San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon said he aims to "fix the harm that was done not only to the entire nation but specifically to communities of color." Nine states have marijuana laws that allow people to clear or modify their records, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
