PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — Cannabis Legal Group is offering to assist men and women who have been convicted of cannabis-related misdemeanors have their records expunged.

The law firm, along with the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association, will be participating at three expungement clinics in Lansing and Pontiac.

Under the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act in 2018, low-level marijuana offenses are no longer illegal.

The clinics will offer free legal advice, document preparation and instruction on what to do in order to expunge convictions from their records.

Those who are interested must have a valid photo ID, no more than one felony conviction, no more than two misdemeanor convictions and have been discharged from jail/probation at least five years before attending any of the clinics.

Individuals can pre-register their information here prior to attending a clinic.

The clinic in Pontiac will be held Sept. 24 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Your Emerging Space, located at 7 N. Saginaw St. #3A.
