SHASTA COUNTY, Calif - Recreational marijuana is legal in California and now, a new 2019 law will help those previously convicted of pot-related crimes.

Currently, the cannabis industry is regulated under the Adult Use Marijuana Act. 

The act states that anyone over the age of 21 can legally possess, process and transport cannabis.

This new law would help people reduce their prior convictions that would no longer stand and possibly get in the way of a new home or job.

This law also gives courts a deadline of July 1, 2020, to automatically reduce or dismiss those crimes.

Back in the 80s on Monday with sunshine lasting all week next week. Windy and dry conditions Wednesday and Thursday will lead to elevated fire weather concerns.
