Recreational marijuana legalization is being enacted across the country, and Washington is noted as one of the states to adapt the law first, with California and Vermont following suit in the beginning of 2018.

Earlier this year, prosecutors in San Francisco dismissed thousands of marijuana-related convictions of residents dating back to 1975, and now, judges in Seattle, Washington, have decided to also dismiss convictions for marijuana possession for anyone prosecuted in the city between 1996 and 2010, reports BBC News.

Possession of marijuana was legalized in Washington in 2012, and marijuana had also been legalized for medical use since 1998. A total of 30 states in the U.S. now allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes.

According to the report, more than 542 people could have their convictions dismissed by mid-November. For the full story, head over to BBC News.
