You can promote an outdated secondary to primary with:
drbdadm -- --overwrite-data-of-peer primary <resource*>*
but this way, once the old primary is restored you'll get a split brain.
To solve it you should issuo on the old primary:
drbdadm -- --discard-my-data connect <resource>
and on the new primary:
drbdadm connect <resource>
