Vermont Law School Held An Event To Help Residents Expunge Cannabis Offenses From Their Criminal Records

Vermont legalized recreational cannabis back in January, making the Green Mountain State the very first American jurisdiction to repeal prohibition through the  legislature as opposed to a ballot initiative. Now, the Vermont Law School is breaking new ground by holding special events to help residents expunge of cannabis offenses from their criminal records.

The event was held in South Royalton earlier today. But it will be the first of a series that will be taking place across the state. Hosted by the school's Center for Justice Reform and Windsor County State’s Attorney David Cahill, the events will help individuals petition for expungement of any misdemeanor cannabis offenses that they were were guilty of committing prior to legalization becoming law.

Robert Sand, the center’s director, says the events aren't likely to have a large turnout. He added that they are an important step in making Vermonters aware that having small cannabis offenses removed from their records is possible.

If you're looking for therapeutic relief, without getting high, you may be a candidate for cannabis topical salves. Making a salve is a rather simple process, so long as you're not infusing it with impurities or extraneous chemicals. Papa & Barkley sources its cannabis, for its line of CBD and THC topicals, from artisanal family farmers in Humboldt, where the company is based.
