Ayr Wellness to host free expungement clinic in Newark this Saturday

Ayr Wellness and Blaze Responsibly have partnered with the Ironbound Community Corp. to host a free community expungement clinic from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at 317 Elm St. in Newark to expunge the records of individuals with past cannabis convictions.

Participants will be able to meet with volunteer attorneys to obtain a free expungement, learn about pending fines or open warrants, and more, for a chance at a clean slate.

Ayr Wellness will also be recruiting onsite and encourages participants to bring their resumes.

This clinic is part of Ayr’s concerted effort to combat the effects of the failed War on Drugs through its ongoing Changing Legacies initiative, a core pillar of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program.
