No, Gov. John Hickenlooper is not proposing a new bill that would free convicts serving time for marijuana crimes and expunge the charges from their records.

Or is he? Wait, no he’s not. It’s not true. The article saying this is FAKE.

The article you probably posted or read on social media isn’t true.

The article posted by The National Report, “Colorado Governor Set To Release Those Convicted On Marijuana Related Charges, Expunge Records,” is satire.

Apparently that didn’t stop people from voicing their concerns to the governor. The Cannabist is reporting that Hickenlooper’s office received 10 calls and around eight emails regarding the online article.
