Green Goods in Frederick is hosting a virtual cannabis expungement clinic Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Maryland state law allows for the expungement of some nonviolent, simple cannabis convictions, according to Green Goods representatives. Some groups have estimated as many as 200,000 cannabis convictions are eligible for expungement, according to a news release about the clinic.
The free, virtual event will feature pro bono attorneys from the Funk & Bolton law firm. The event is open to anyone interested in a secure, online environment to provide guidance on the expungement process and the steps for attendees to clear their records of cannabis-related charges.
A company representative said having simple, non-violent cannabis convictions expunged can make it easier for someone to get jobs, loans and rental properties.
