Voters in Colorado passed a pretty nice law, Amendment 64. In this case, it is the very same law that allows for the possession of marijuana in small amounts for recreational use that, now, allows for those once caught with small amounts to remove the info from their legal records. Hit the jump for the full scoop.

Via Daily Beast:

Amendment 64, can be applied retroactively to minor drug offenses, but only if convicted drug users had already started appealing when the new law came into force. The decision came in a case from 2010 when a woman was convicted of possessing small amounts of pot, which is now legal.

Despite this major step forward, the amendment cannot be used for convictions decades ago.
