Colorado will issue automatic pardons to over 2,700 marijuana convictions

Colorado Governor Jared Poli has announced that he is planning on issuing a mass-pardon for 2,732 low-level marijuana possession convictions. Earlier this year a bill had been signed to give him the authority to issue such pardon through an executive order.

The pardon will apply to convictions in state courts through 2012 of up to 1 ounce for recreational use.
