Thousands of CT residents with cannabis convictions set to have records clear

Thousands of Connecticut residents convicted of cannabis possession will have their records cleared at the start of next year.

Gov. Ned Lamont announced Tuesday that records in about 44,000 cases will be fully or partially erase in January as part of the state’s 2021 law legalizing cannabis possession and retail sales.

“Especially as Connecticut employers seek to fill hundreds of thousands of job openings, an old conviction for low-level cannabis possession should not hold someone back from pursuing their career, housing, professional, and educational aspirations,” Lamont said in a written statement Tuesday.
