SPRINGFIELD — Legalization of marijuana in the state means that work continues to help those convicted of pot crimes clear their records with the Massachusetts National Day of Expungement Oct. 27 in Boston.
“There’s still people in jail for processing, consuming and/or distributing cannabis,” Kamani Jefferson of the Massachusetts Recreational Consumer Council said Monday. “On top of that, those folks who have been released still have records for activity now deemed legal.”
The event is set for 6 to 9 p.m. at District Hall, 75 Northern Ave., according to the eventbrite.com listing of the event.
The event will include explanations of how to clear records, job resources, question-and-answer sessions with Suffolk County district attorney candidates and voter registration, the listing said.
