In connection to Prop 207, AZ Capitol Times ran this article. I don't have a subscription so not sure of the full details or if it makes SNAP eligibility any easier. Courts prepare for rush to expunge marijuana convictions -> https://azcapitoltimes.com/news/2021/02/25/courts-prepare-for-rush-to-expunge-marijuana-convictions/
Angie Rodgers-AzFBN

Thanks Meghanne! The article is about expungement vs set aside convictions. We think this might make it easier for individuals but we will need to do some outreach to let these folks know to apply for SNAP!
