OLYMPIA, Wash -- Supporters of a bill that would let Washington state residents have misdemeanor marijuana convictions thrown out  are running into some opposition.

At a hearing on Wednesday in Olympia, the head of the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys noted  that the bill would allow people to have their convictions erased even if they have more than the legal  limit.

Before voters approved a ballot initiative that legalized small amounts of pot for personal use, misdemeanor pot possession was defined as up to 40 grams.
