North Dakota Gov. Burgum pardons 16 low-level pot offenders

James MacPherson, The Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum announced Friday that he has pardoned 16 people convicted of low-level marijuana crimes, the first wave in what may be thousands under a new policy the first-term Republican said gives former offenders a second chance.

The policy adopted last year allows people with low-level marijuana convictions petition to have their records wiped clean if they avoid unlawful behaviour for five years. The pardons erase the convictions as if they never occurred and records are shielded from public view.
