Do you have a criminal record in Pennsylvania for a minor marijuana offense?
If you are one of thousands of people who were charged and convicted of simple marijuana charges in Pennsylvania – a drug that in many states is perfectly legal – you now have the chance to get those criminal charges off your permanent record.
There is no charge for the online application. But hurry – the deadline to apply for the Marijuana Pardon Project is September 30, 2022.
Having a criminal record can permanently affect your chances of gaining employment, finding housing, getting into college and getting financing for automobiles and homes. If you want a second chance, the time is now.
According to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s website, if you had one or both of these convictions in Pennsylvania, you are eligible to apply:
- The conviction must have taken place in Pennsylvania;
- There is no statute of limitations for the conviction – it doesn’t matter how long ago the offense occurred;
- This is only for first-time marijuana offenders. People with additional convictions on their record are not eligible.
