The Smart and Safe Arizona Act, commonly known as Proposition 207 (Prop. 207)
was approved by voters in the 2020 elections. This initiative will allow many people
with Arizona marijuana criminal convictions to have their records expunged.
Defendants who meet the following criteria may have their records for certain marijuana-related offenses vacated and expunged, through a process of sealing:
1. Did your charge involve the possession, consumption, or transportation of two and one-half ounces or
less of marijuana, of which not more than 12 1/2 grams was in the form of marijuana concentrate?
2. Did your charge involve the possession, transportation, cultivation, or processing of
fewer than six marijuana plants at your primary residence for personal use?
3. Did your charge involve the possession, use, or transportation of paraphernalia related
to the cultivation, manufacture, processing or consumption of marijuana?
If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, you may qualify to have your marijuana criminal record
permanently expunged. Please make sure you’re working with an experienced legal services provider.
