Seattle court agrees to clear past pot convictions

Things are about to change for several people in Spokane.

The Spokane City Council unanimously voted Monday night to pass an ordinance that would wipe the slate clean for people previously convicted of misdemeanor possession charges before July of last year.

From here, Mayor David Condon has to sign the ordinance. Once he does, it will take effect after 30 days.

If you have a prior charge that fits the requirements, you'll now be able to apply to have the city change your record so the case says "dismissed."
