What’s life like after life for weed? Six months after clemency, Corvain Cooper fights for place in legal industry

Though there had been no allegations of violence, Cooper’s two prior minor drug convictions meant the cannabis conviction was a third strike, forcing a judge to send the then-34-year-old to prison for life without the possibility of parole.
