When Illinois passed the law legalizing marijuana in the state, Governor Pritzker promised to clear the criminal records of those with minor offenses on their record. Since that law was signed, more than 780,000 people with minor, non-conviction cannabis offenses have gotten their records expunged. Once you include the people convicted of marijuana-related offenses pardoned by Governor Pritzker, that number gets close to 800,000. New Leaf Illinois, a state funded network of non-profit organizations, says there are still plenty of people who still need to have their records expunged. The organization is encouraging people who have marijuana related charges on their records to reach out for legal help.
