On Tuesday, January 21, from noon to 1:30 pm, DePaul University’s Institute for Business and Professional Ethics, in partnership with the Center for Public Interest Law at the DePaul University College of Law will hold a lunchtime discussion to explore issues around cannabis reform, the expungement process and open avenues for entry into the now legalized cannabis economy.
The goal is to educate attendees about the social impact of making cannabis legal, address public concern, meet representatives well versed on the topic and clear up any misconceptions regarding expungement, racial equality and more.
The criminal expungement process is of particular interest, as the logistics, timetable and real-world impact become increasingly important with legislation coming into effect on January 1, 2020.
Guest speakers will be Majority Deputy Leader Representative Jehan Gordon-Booth (Illinois State Representative, 92nd District); Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx; and Esther Franco-Payne, Executive Director of the Cabrini Green Legal Aid Clinic.
