Colorado Courts Rule Some Pot Convictions Can Be Overturned Published: March 13, 2014

Colorado's second-highest court ruled Thursday that some people convicted of possessing small amounts of marijuana can ask for those convictions to be thrown out under the law that legalized recreational marijuana in the state, according to The Associated Press.

The Colorado Court of Appeals said people whose cases were under appeal when Amendment 64 took effect in December 2012 are eligible to have their convictions reversed.

A spokeswoman for the Attorney General John Suthers said prosecutors are reviewing the opinion to determine any next steps, the AP reports.
