How to clear (vacate) your drug possession conviction after State v. Blake
State v. Blake is a 2021 Washington State Supreme Court decision that says the state’s drug possession law is unconstitutional. If you were convicted of drug possession on or before February 25, 2021, you can get those convictions cleared (“vacated”) and removed from your criminal record. You may also get a refund of the legal financial obligations (LFOs) you paid on your drug possession case/s. The law the court found unconstitutional is “Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance” or “VUCSA – possession” (RCW 69.50.4013 and earlier versions of that law). Packets #8720EN and #8721EN
