Attitudes toward marijuana have been changing as states across the country have pushed to legalize the drug. While Kentucky is not one of the 23 states to have currently legalized or decriminalized marijuana in some capacity, Kentuckian’s don’t appear to be opposed to the idea.
A poll found that an overwhelming 78% of Kentuckian’s support legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, while 40% of Kentuckian’s also support legalizing marijuana for any purpose. Despite shifting opinions, the impact of criminalization are still being felt.
Something as small as a low-level drug conviction can have lasting impacts. Even with a great job and great credit, a conviction can prevent individuals from landing their dream home, receiving a student loan, or obtaining professional licenses.
Fortunately, individuals with a marijuana possession charge on their record can file a motion to have their convictions voided and sealed. Voiding has the same effect as expunging a conviction, so a record will be cleared of the conviction. An offender is only allowed to void a possession conviction once.
Historically, it hasn’t been easy for the average person to file their own motion to void and seal a conviction. In an effort to change that, the attorneys at Baldani Law Group have created an automated motion to void and seal generator. Now, anyone can create a motion to void and seal by simply filling out a form. Once the document is generated, an offender simply needs to take the document to their circuit court clerk’s office.
