According to SFGate, San Francisco will wiping thousands of convictions related to marijuana. Since marijuana was made legal for recreational use in November 2016, the state decided that it would make sense to either expunge or reduce misdemeanors and felony convictions going back decades.

As a result many people will find themselves out of prison soon, or have their marijuana-related "criminal" histories deleted making it easier for them to find a job or apply for government benefits.

While one option now would be for all the individuals concerned to petition the courts, the state of San Francisco has decided that there's an easier and more efficient way to do it. San Francisco prosecutors will be reviewing the old cases potentially going back decades themselves and wipe out the convictions in bulk.

Most likely more than 3000 misdemeanor marijuana convictions will be dismissed, and another close to 5000 felony marijuana cases will be reviewed.
