Sisolak proposes broad pardon for people with low-level marijuana offenses

Gov. Steve Sisolak tested the waters Wednesday on whether members of a state board would issue a blanket pardon for people convicted of marijuana offenses, such as low-level possession, that are now legal. Sisolak brought the idea up at a meeting of the Board of Pardons Commissioners. The panel, which includes the governor and members of the Nevada Supreme Court, deals with requests for clemency from inmates or requests for pardons, which restore rights taken away because of criminal convictions.
