  • Requires the court to hold a hearing determining whether the conviction is a qualifying marijuana conviction if the court receives an objection from the prosecuting attorney (Sec. 2).

  • Requires the court to issue an order sealing the record of conviction and other official records in the case, if the motion to set aside the qualifying marijuana conviction is granted (Sec. 2).
