Shanita Penny, 35, of Denver, speaks about her experiences of getting charged with possession of marijuana while driving in Virginia in 2011. “I don’t feel like I did anything wrong or that I’m a horrible person, but to have to go through the court system and everything else, it does do something to you internally. It changes who you are.” Penny now helps others expunge their records and create jobs. She spoke at "The Faces of Marijuana Prohibition" event at the Cannon Office Building of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.
