DENVER (AP) — A simplified program will make it easier for thousands of people to seek the elimination of low-level marijuana convictions they received in Denver before recreational use became legal in Colorado, officials said Wednesday.

Based on a review of digitized court records between 2001 and 2013, Denver officials have estimated 10,000 convictions could be eligible. The new program requires people to fill out an online form or get help to do so. Officials with legal expertise will then seek court approval to dismiss the convictions and seal the offenders’ records.
