Marijuana crimes have led to over 40 million arrests since Richard Nixon launched the war on drugs in the 1970s. The so-called “collateral consequences” of these arrests can prevent offenders from getting certain jobs, certain public benefits, and even student loans. Now that marijuana is being legalized in places across the country, there’s a growing movement to expunge – or wipe away - these arrests. Lou examines the pros and cons.
