end mandatory minimums
needs to happen. it is absolute shite that people with drug problems go to jail instead of treatment.
Then if they get a felony rap, they are in a situation where they have no hope of improving their lives because getting a job become nearly impossible.
Like I said earlier. I've known a few people with Marijuana tickets, but every black dude I know went to jail for it. Under an ounce is a municipal offense now in NOLA, so that a step in the right direction. Hard for that to show up in background checks.
