I volunteer at a help center for people who are homeless, and see so many people who have a criminal history of a drug offense who are prohibited from getting housing and jobs because of it. They aren't dangerous, and have done time for their offense. But now they are out on their own with this anchor around their necks and can't get it off to pick themselves up and move on.
