800K Ill Pot Convictions To Be Removed From Criminal Records
Almost 800,000 marijuana judgments to be erased from criminal records in Illinois.
In just a few months, there will be a new era in Illinois. I'm talking about recreational marijuana. Since the laws will change in the state, the authorities will have to go back and look at the criminal cases that were once illegal but will soon be legal.
According to cnn.com,
"If you've been arrested for weed in Illinois, you can breathe a sigh of relief. In addition to legalizing marijuana, there's relief to the roughly 770,000 residents of the state with marijuana-related offenses on their criminal records."
