*The governors of North Dakota, Colorado, Nevada and Washington are taking the same steps.
Illinois Governor JB Pritzker issued more than 500,000 expunges and amnesty to people with low-level cannabis convictions, excellent news for the cannabis industry and the people involved.
According to the Normlwebsite, in response to this major event, the Governor of Illinois said: “Across the state, Illinoisans have hundreds of thousands of low-level cannabis-related records, a burden that communities of color bear disproportionately. He added: “We can never fully remedy the depth of that damage. But we can govern with the courage to admit the mistakes of our past and the decency to establish a better way forward”.
This great event happens after to have passed exactly a year, moment at which the governor Pritzker put in circulation a set of pardons in the vicinity of the promulgation that makes legal the sale of cannabis for adults. Following this, the governors of North Dakota, Colorado, Nevada and Washington are carrying out the same measures.
