After Dane Jordan was convicted of illegally growing marijuana 13 years ago, he gave up his dream of becoming a psychologist. After all, medical boards don’t readily hand out Ph.D.s to convicted felons.
He couldn’t rent certain apartments. He didn’t even bother applying to most jobs.
Jordan’s life was altered irrevocably by his decision to grow a few plants with no product on them. And years after his conviction, he continued to suffer the repercussions of a law that no longer existed.
