How will Prop 64 affect people with past marijuana convictions?

The countdown to the election is in its final days. On November 8, voters in California will have the opportunity to vote for the legalization of marijuana via a ballot measure entitled Proposition 64. Although small amounts of marijuana are already decriminalized in the state, half a million people have still been arrested for marijuana-related crimes since 2006.

Under California law, it is illegal for anyone to drive while under the influence of any drugs, or a combination of drugs and alcohol. In practice, however, the government may have serious difficulties proving beyond a reasonable doubt that a driver who smoked marijuana was intoxicated.
