Several new laws took effect in Nevada on July 1. Assembly Bill 192 deals with previous marijuana possession convictions, which non-violent marijuana possession convictions may qualify.
Those previously convicted of possessing an ounce could qualify, Fox 5 Vegas News reported. Those with these convictions can petition the court. If the court grants the request to have the conviction sealed, it would no longer appear on criminal records.
Assembly Bill 431 allows convicted felons the right to vote in Nevada. This means that those previous convicted of marijuana crimes that were felonies can vote in upcoming elections. Those currently incarcerated for a felony related to marijuana can vote upon release.
