Washington D.C. - Lawmakers in the nation's capital voted Tuesday to make it easier than in any state for people who have marijuana convictions to have their criminal records sealed, the latest effort by the city to liberalize its pot laws. Approval of the bill follows the D.C. Council's move earlier this year to decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot. People caught with an ounce or less of marijuana are now subject to a $25 fine, one of the lowest in the nation. Next month, voters will decide whether possession of up to two ounces of pot should be legal in the District of Columbia.
