The first clinic was held last weekend at downtown Minneapolis’ Green Goods
Medical cannabis dispensaries in Minnesota like Goodness Growth Holdings, Inc., a physician-led, science-focused cannabis company and IP incubator, are partnering with volunteer attorneys from St. Paul’s Mitchell Hamline School of Law to host expungement clinics to help people clear their records of nonviolent cannabis charges.
The first clinic was held last weekend at downtown Minneapolis’ Green Goods cannabis patient center from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Pre-registration was required to attend the event, and all participants needed to bring their case information and court records.
The event aims to reduce the harm caused by the ineffective and often racially biased “War on Drugs” and help more Minnesotans, especially people of color qualify for meaningful employment within the cannabis industry or other industries. In Minnesota alone, more than 53,000 people were convicted of low-level (misdemeanor or petty misdemeanor) cannabis-related charges between 1998-2018.
