The short answer is "no" a marijuana charge that resulted in a probation cannot be expunged. However, if the "probation" was, in fact a "deferred adjudication," then it may be possible to seek an Order of Non-Disclosure, which, if granted, has the effect of removing the charge from public view. Cwertain agencies can still find the record, but for most purposes, not the general public.
