Expungement of marijuana charges. Provides that anyone who has had a charge of possession of marijuana discharged and dismissed in accordance with the provisions of 18.2-251, more than ten years prior to his petition for expungement, may file a petition setting forth the relevant facts and requesting expungement of the police records and the court records relating to the charge.
