On Monday, November 21, Oregon Governor Kate Brown granted clemency to 45,000 people who had committed minor marijuana possession convictions. As a result of this action, more than $14 million in penalties and fees connected to previous crimes will be waived. That’s why President Joe Biden appreciated her step.

According to the officials of the state, the records of 47,144 convictions for possession of a small amount of marijuana will be removed after the pardon is granted. This will “eliminate barriers for thousands of people seeking employment, housing, and educational opportunities who have otherwise been ineligible,” the officials said.
