Canada starts pardoning historic cannabis convictions

The Canadian government has started to expunge historical cannabis convictions. People with existing convictions for possession of small amounts of cannabis and who have no other criminal records will receive an official pardon and their criminal record will be deleted. It is thought that over 250,000 Canadians are eligible for an official pardon.
