Expungement is the legal process of removing a criminal conviction from public view. Under the REDEEM Act, individuals with certain cannabis convictions can apply to have these records expunged, meaning they won’t show up in most background checks.

This process can offer numerous benefits:

  • “Criminal Record Clearance: Expungement effectively clears the offense from your criminal record as if it never occurred.”
  • “Enhanced Employment Opportunities: With a cleared record, individuals can pursue job opportunities without the stigma of a past conviction.”
  • “Educational Benefits: Expungement opens doors to educational programs that may be restricted to those with criminal histories.”
  • “Housing Opportunities: Expungement can improve your chances of securing housing by removing potential barriers caused by background checks.”
  • “Personal Confidence: Achieving expungement can restore personal confidence and peace of mind, knowing that past cannabis offenses won’t hold you back.”
