Holley on Passage of Expungement Legislation Concerning Cannabis Offenses

(TRENTON) - On the approval of legislation that would revise procedure for expunging records of conviction, Assemblyman Jamel Holley (D-Union) issued the following statement Monday:

"An opportunity for a clean slate for someone who has committed minor offenses is the best thing we can do to enable them to seize the opportunities life presents them.

"Moving this bill alongside legislation concerning the legalization of cannabis is critically important to correcting the wrongs of the past as we now look forward to the future of marijuana use in New Jersey.

"Expanding definitions, and creating a process for residents to clear their name and their record had to be a part of, a critical part of, cannabis regulation."
