Cannabis laws are changing around the United States in a number of areas and this means that thousands of people are going to be eligible for their criminal records to be expunged. We have seen this take place for thousands of cannabis convictions and 'cannabis criminals' already over the last several years.
Going through the process might be confusing though and maybe there will be some individuals who have a hard time understanding how they might qualify for that removal if they are entitled to it.
To try and address this need there are clinics that have been set up in places like Arizona and other areas that are seeking to help individuals with past criminal records to navigate the new system. This means they're doing the hard work of helping many people to properly fill out the right papers so that they can exercise that expungement opportunity.
Helping cannabis users expunge their records
This means over 100k people with low level cannabis charges could seek that opportunity to have the records expunged in just one state.
An Expungement Affair
Around the U.S. in Arizona, California, and other regions, it is worth seeking out free cannabis expungement clinics to see if there are resources to help clear records that might be entitled. For those who have had the unfortunate experience of suffering a criminal record because of cannabis activity now they have an opportunity to change it. This could mean more opportunity in their life for better housing, better job opportunities, and a new start at life with those records expunged for them.
For anyone with a past criminal history for cannabis related convictions, in areas that have moved forward with legalization, it might be worth looking to see if these resource clinics are available. This is an opportunity for people in those areas to pursue that avenue of expungement, when legalization occurs, to take that change to clear the record when possible and rectify that wrong.
Many might not know yet that these clinics are available and they are valuable resources that can help to make people's lives better that have been unjustly ruined with violence that had been inflicted over harmless cannabis-related activities. Overall, with legalization spreading around the U.S. there are hundreds of thousands of past "cannabis criminals" who are expected to qualify for their low-level records to be expunged.
