If you have marijuana or marijuana-related convictions on your record in Arizona, you may qualify to have those convictions set aside and have your civil rights restored. You may be able to remove barriers to employment, housing and voting.

Under Prop. 207, which Arizona voters approved in November 2020, individuals may qualify to petition to have the courts expunge marijuana and marijuana-related convictions from before November 2020.

To learn what offenses qualify for being expunged, and more about the process of having those convictions expunged, come to the clinic Community Legal Services will be holding from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23, at the Metris Global Tactical Training Facility at 1921 S. California Avenue in Parker.

You can also call 1-602-258-3434 or 1-800-722-4026 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, or go online to www.azlawhelp.org/accesstojustice of https://azexpunge.org/contact-us.
