Que?  No more federal sentencing guidelines.  Why not just pardon the sentences of all those people in jail.

i know you're trying to be sarcastic but....

 

 

unironically, why not pardon all low-level drug offenders?

Yeah, a lot of people thought Obama would actually take a liberal approach to drug policy (particularly marijuana) because, well, he was a fuging pothead back in the day.  This little change in enforcement was pretty much nothing, and his entire administration has done nothing to change status quo on drugs so far.

 

He has two and a half years to grow some balls and actually do something about one of the biggest sources of waste in government, I hope he does

It may have a little chance of being one small thing that does not get obstructed by the Repubtards. Although, they'd really love to privatize the prison system for the sake of building huge iconoclasts and making a few of their buddies very rich men on the backs of the taxpayers.

Because the machine needs to maintain a system that helps bring continued imbalance to the social hierarchy and the cheap slave labor the bottom tier provides...

is someone going to tell the drug dealer how much to have/sell so he never gets put in jail? who is going to decide what is "low" level now?

 

a plus for not going to prison. not a plus for drugs being sold in a neighborhood.

law enforcement and prosecutors have never had a hard time tacking intent to distribute on top of possession
