I'm in a similar boat to the original poster. I would like to add two things that I've discovered in my research, that may be helpful for future readers. 1) Michigan is currently working on legislation to include a "one bad night " exception to expungements . Basically meaning even if you had multiple felonies from the same instance you may qualify to have both expunged. 2) Now that recreational exist You may qualify for a cannabis micro-business license. As marijuana specific drug charges do not disqualify you for being eligible.
