Pittsburgh NORML Meeting and Free Expungement Workshop

Our montly meeting is Thursday January 5th starting around 7PM at Black Forge Coffee House and we will discuss the latest in the news and views of medical marijuana here in Pittsburgh and PA.

We also invite all of our friends and supporters to join us for a free “expungement workshop.” Attorney Patrick K. Nightingale of PKN Law – Pittsburgh Criminal Defense Attorneys and Executive Director of Pittsburgh Norml will be discussing PA Expungement law and what rights you have to remove certain criminal charges from your criminal history.

If you have a marijuana related charge on your record and you are curious if it can be expunged come and we will give you free and direct legal advice.

Please share this with anyone you know that may have interest in this valuable workshop.

Expungement (also called “expunction”) is a court-ordered process in which the legal record of an arrest or a criminal conviction is “sealed,” or erased in the eyes of the law. When a conviction is expunged, the process may also be referred to as “setting aside a criminal conviction.” The availability of expungement, and the procedure for getting an arrest or conviction expunged, will vary according to the state or county in which the arrest or conviction occurred.

Pittsburgh NORML Upcoming Meetings

Join Pittsburgh NORML and The Pittsburgh NORML Women’s Alliance on October 6th for our monthly meeting!

With special guest speaker: John Craig Hammond!

John “Craig” Hammond reached out to Pittsburgh NORML seeking the support of cannabis consumers both in his District and throughout the region. Craig supports full legalization and will be another strong voice advocating the rights of cannabis consumers in Harrisburg. He is running against Mike Turzai!

We are a 501(c)(3) so we cannot “endorse” Craig, but as with John Hanger and John Fetterman we will not hesitate to support PA candidates who support cannabis reform.

We need to start building momentum for statewide decriminalization. The GOP is going to consider it, but we need to make the case for no mandatory fines.

Find out how YOU can help!

(Free Freedom Leaf Magazine to those that attend while supplies last!)
