Gov. Maura Healey looks to pardon misdemeanor cannabis possession convictions


Gov. Maura Healey asked a group of elected officials to approve a plan that would pardon misdemeanor cannabis possession convictions, a move she said could impact “hundreds of thousands of people.”

Healey pitched her proposal Wednesday as the “most comprehensive action” by a governor since President Joe Biden pardoned federal cannabis possession convictions and called on state leaders to do the same. The initiative needs the sign off from the Governor’s Council, a seven-member group tasked with reviewing pardons and judicial nominations.
