My friend says in Adams County, you cannot have a criminal record erased if you were arrested and convicted of possessing marijuana. Is he right?

In Illinois, and that includes every county, a conviction on your record cannot be expunged, or erased. However, sentences of supervision are not considered to be convictions and may be expunged. Crimes where supervision was imposed have a two-year or five-year waiting period. Possession of marijuana carries a five-year waiting period.
