2021 Illinois Evidence-Based Practices Virtual Conference Series: Cannabis Legalization in Illinois and Opportunities

August 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


In 2019, the Cannabis Regulation & Tax Act was signed into law. In addition to decriminalizing possession of marijuana, the Act has been heralded as the most equity-centric legislation in the country because it creates a process to expunge past cannabis convictions. This workshop is designed for people with mental illnesses, as well as mental health professionals. The presentation will include information about (1) an overview of the new law; (2) how to expunge cannabis criminal records; (3) how the law impacts other laws including disability, employment, housing, and immigration; (4) employment opportunities in the cannabis industry, and (5) free legal resources for expungement.
