How to wipe out cannabis convictions

Criminal records can stand in the way of a job or housing. But with legalization, activists are helping clear people’s names.

Lorenze Lanier, 32, spent his first decade as an adult in and out of prison for non-violent drug offenses. “I was 18. I didn’t know what to do, so I started selling drugs,” he said.
