Trulieve Cannabis Corp. is hosting a series of expungement clinics in south and central Florida this month, as well as virtual events in Georgia and Massachusetts.
During April, Minardi Law has hosted expungement clinics and will be hosting the First 4/20 event in St. Petersburg Beach.
At these clinics, an attorney reviews records to see if someone is eligible for a sealing or expungement of their records. As part of the events, Trulieve will help cover the costs for fingerprints, legal fees and court costs.
Trulieve is working with Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM) to host a 4/20 Expungement Clinic, part of M4MM's Project Clean Slate. This event will take place on Saturday, April 24 from 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Riviera Beach City Hall.
In addition, Trulieve is sponsoring the First Friday Series, a weekly virtual event from the Georgia Justice Project to help Georgia citizens with record restrictions and is also sponsoring the Fellowship Presentation and Expungement Clinic being offered through CultivateEd and GBLS on Friday, April 23 from 3-4 p.m.
"Our mission as a company has always been to improve people's lives," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "We've always been dedicated to improving the communities we call home. Partnering with Minardi Law, Minorities for Medical Marijuana, Georgia Justice Project and CultivatED on these clinics was a simple decision for us. We encourage anyone seeking help with the expungement process to attend one of these clinics in your own state to start the process."
