The Legalization of Marijuana is Finally Here!

On New Year's Eve, the night before the long-anticipated legalization of marijuana for recreational use in Illinois, Governor Pritzker pardoned over 11,000 people with low-level marijuana convictions. Illinois is the first state to include a process for those previously convicted of marijuana possession to seek relief upon the legalization of marijuana. The linked article explains the difference between a pardon and expungement in further detail, but the essential difference is that a pardon forgives the conviction while an expungement erases all record of it from the public record.
