The Seattle office of Cultiva Law, PLLC will be holding a vacation of criminal records clinic at Seattle Hempfest 2018.
This weekend, the members of Seattle Cultiva Law Office will be at Hempfest donating our time and knowledge to help clear drug criminal histories. We will have attorneys present and help determine whether your drug conviction qualifies for expungement – or, a vacation of conviction –– and, if so, we’ll provide resources on how to do so.
It is strongly recommended that individuals interested in consulting with us go to the following link, obtain their criminal record, and bring it to the clinic: https://fortress.wa.gov/wsp/watch/
Find us in the southeast corner of the Hemposium tent:
- Friday, August 17: 12-4pm
- Saturday, August 18: 10am-1pm
- Sunday, August 19: 10am-1pm
Despite the legalization of marijuana in 30 states, to date, the war on drugs – and, in particular, marijuana prosecutions – continues to severely disadvantage communities that are often already marginalized and oppressed. A criminal history, of any type, can be an economic death sentence for a young person trying to find work or housing. For those already disadvantaged by the system, these negative impacts are even more amplified.
While the City of Seattle has taken a leadership role in righting these wrongs by filing a motion to clear Seattle misdemeanor marijuana possession convictions, the Washington Legislature has not found the political courage to draft sensible legislation that takes responsibility for our failed War on Drugs. In the meantime, we will do our best to fill in the gaps by providing education and mechanisms for individuals to clear up their Washington criminal history.
Cultiva Law is committed to fighting these unfair drug prosecutions and their disproportionate impacts.
We look forward to seeing you there!
