    My only objection is that the penalties are biased against the poor. The jail time for the expensive powder cocaine rich people use is small compared to the cheap crack cocaine poor people use.

    They should be the same penalty, which is nothing I would legalize it. But if illegal, they should be the same punishment.

    Legalize drugs and distribute through licensed outlets. Problem solved.

    I don`t know about you dude, but I`m seriously discomforted by the fact that people spend a huge chunk of their lives in jail for selling chemicals and then can`t get a job after completing their sentence. They either turn to charity or worse welfare just to get by.

    That really is so unfair! They all look like very nice people and they are all smiling nicely. They are all innocent. Start a riot. Blame someone, quickly! It`s O`bama`s fault. etc...

    lol: ""Over the past 40 years, we actually have a lot of information about what works in the criminal justice system and what does not," Otis told CNN. "What works is prison. What does not is what we were doing in the `60s and `70s, when sentencing was lenient and we believed in rehabilitation."

    Right, the thing that works in every other country does not apply to USA... Who pays this guys salary?

    I couldn`t make it past "Easier to bust dummies than Bush" before deciding this post wasn`t worth the effort to click.
