Possession Limits Pre & Post Legalization In Your State??

Can anyone let me know what your states possession limits were before legalization and post. Just landed myself in a jam but in a state that is about to legalize within next yr or so… As I’m searching penalties in neighboring legal states it seems that my charges hold little to no real jail time and for sure no felonies. Can someone help calm a guys nerves and share how your state dealt with things differently after legalization?


I’m really looking to hear how other states have down graded their penalties, NormL doesn’t show previous penalties. My hope is my state will lower the penalties when/if we legalize this yr and my case won’t mean much… High hopes lol. So I’m curious how far other states down graded their charges.

In Canada prior to legalization you were under the jurisprudence of the laws at the time. Not what the laws would become. Legalization has much stiffer penalties.

I am in the USA and it seems most of the states that have become legal expunge the records of those whose charges become no longer a crime or felonies that become misdemeanor.

For the most part all legal states have downgraded their charges/penalties after legalization.

Only a few municipalities are going full expungement that I’m aware of and only certain charges. I had a case dismissed but it’s still on the record. The dismissal was part of a plea agreement and had nothing to do with the change in laws. I caught my case in 2012ish and nothing changed after recreational in CA.

I can say I’ve never been arrested on most job applications, but a simple google search on one of those websites will show a history. I’ve never checked to see what actually pops up or how much detail is available. Even with recreational laws in effect, jobs are still testing for and excluding cannabis users in most industries.

Cali seems to be the best state for this. I can only pray my state acts in the same way.

I just reached out to the Los Angelos DA’s office. They aren’t allowed to discuss my case in regards to AB 1793 without me hiring an attorney. When I google my name a criminal record still appears. If I ever get anything in the mail from the state, I’ll post about it. It would be really cool, but I’m not expecting any change for myself. The bill seems to focus on getting folks out of the jails rather than expungement. I’d be happy if they just sealed it up but an expungement would be awesome.

It's not a felony until over a key here.

Your best bet may be to get a good lawyer and stall out until legalization occurs. Don't skimp out on lawyers and the crookeder the better. Bribes are still part and parcel of the legal system.

I would suggest contacting a mj lawyer for a free consultation on whether or not your eligible. It's my understanding that in CA if your crime was once a felony and is now a misdemeanor they will reduce, if it was a misdemeanor then and is now a non crime they expunge.

Expungement is not in the cards for me but I'll gladly take any misdemeanor charges!

I'd be really interested in hearing from people in Mass about this topic. Seems like your possession penalties are light.
