A new program to help residents in Illinois who want to seal marijuana arrests or convictions from their criminal records has been launched with state funding. New Leaf Illinois will work under the auspices of the Illinois Equal Justice Foundation (IEJF), an organization that distributes state funds to legal aid nonprofits. Previously, IEJF administered funds across two broad program areas – general legal aid and legal aid for veterans. Now, legal aid for marijuana offenses has been added as a distinct program.
