Craig Bjorland didn’t get to see his stepdaughter graduate from military basic training in 2017.
“I flew to Texas to go to her graduation and I wasn’t allowed on base because of my marijuana charge,” he said.
Instead, he drove around Dallas in a rental car to kill time.
In 2010, Bjorland was pulled over and arrested for what he said was a small amount of marijuana and paraphernalia. He paid fines and completed community service for two misdemeanor offenses.
Now those convictions are gone.
