New Marijuana Legalization Bill Proposes Expungement of Records, Assembly Leader Says

Assembly Majority Leader Crystal Peoples-Stokes, D-Buffalo, told reporters at the state Capitol on Tuesday that she’s planning to introduce a bill later this week that would legalize marijuana and allow expungement of low-level marijuana-related criminal records.

A new bill designed to legalize marijuana for adult, recreational use in New York will include a provision allowing those previously convicted on low-level drug charges to have their criminal records expunged, rather than sealed.
