the state of Michigan held its first-ever expungement fair to help clear out cannabis-related convictions.
The fair was held at a local police department but included some fun activities such as a dunk tank and music for those waiting in line. There was even a vaccination clinic on site for those interested.
Expungement is eligible for some cannabis-related misdemeanors and select felony cases.
Numerous attendees stated that their convictions had been sitting in their records for multiple decades and had made it extremely difficult for them to grow professionally.
The Lt. Governor of Michigan mentioned in a statement that, “Michigan’s updated laws and events like today’s will have an immense positive impact on hundreds of thousands of residents who have faced a confusing and expensive process to apply for an expungement. There is more work to do, but Michigan is proud to be a leader in removing barriers to economic opportunity for people who deserve a second chance.”
