Denver's Turn Over a New Leaf Program Provides Assistance for Vacating Low-Level Marijuana Convictions

Denver, Colorado announced its Turn Over a New Leaf Program that vacates and seals low-level marijuana convictions that occurred in Denver. Denver created the program to address social injustices including the negative impact of marijuana convictions on a person’s life . Individuals convicted of marijuana charges for conduct that is now legal may file an online application to have the conviction vacated and charges dismissed. Individuals can request a waiver of the $65 court filing fee and $28 fee by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. The Turn Over a New Leaf Program and the Marijuana Industry Group will cover fees that are not waived.
