The Boulder District Attorney’s Office has previously announced a new initiative called “Moving On from Marijuana.” As part of the new initiative, the District Attorney’s Office will take proactive steps to help vacate marijuana convictions on behalf of qualifying defendants in order to relieve them of the collateral consequences, such as college admission or gainful employment, associated with prior convictions for conduct that would be legal today.

To kick off the “Moving On from Marijuana” initiative, we invite community members to join
us in the Training Room on the 2nd Floor of the Boulder Justice Center, located at 1777 6 th Street, Boulder, Colorado, on either January 10, 2019 from 9:00 a.m – 11:00 a.m or January 15, 2019 from 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. to speak with us about prior convictions. If a case qualifies for relief, the DistrictAttorney’s Office will assist with the process.
After this initial kick off, the District Attorney’s Office will have an application form on the
District Attorney’s website that can be submitted electronically.

District Attorney Michael Dougherty is committed to pursuing justice in every case and assuring that now legal conduct does not continue to have an adverse impact on people’s lives. It is a matter of fundamental fairness.
