Twenty legal aid organizations come together for a new effort to help Illinoisans expunge their records for minor marijuana charges. New Leaf Illinois organizers say there are over 700,000 people across the state who could be eligible for expungement. Now, organizations helping turn the new leaf will provide free services to low income residents through funding in the Cannabis Regulation Act. Advocates say this opportunity could be critical for many.
