ND Governor Pardons 16 Low-Level Cannabis Convictions


16 people who had been convicted of low-level cannabis crimes have been pardoned by North Dakota Governor Dough Burgum, according to an article on KFGO out of Fargo-Moorhead. The governor said that as the number of pardons grows, it could address North Dakota’s shortage of workers and help the economy as well.

This is just the beginning of what is expected to be thousands of pardons, under a new policy that was announced last year. The policy says that those convicted of low-level cannabis offences can petition to have their records expunged, if they avoid scrapes with the law for five years.
