  •  Support Sen Webb we need to change drug laws (10+ / 0-)

    I have contacted Sen Webb concerning S.714 as well as my Sen. Snowe and Collins of my state (Maine). Hope others will speak up and move S. 714 forward.

    My brother who had never broken any law until he was caught with crack cocaine is in jail waiting to be sentenced on Fed charges. A good dad, grand dad and person is looking at spending 10 years in jail.

    Like many other people who fall from grace due to drug laws, jail is not the answer. Reform of unfair, stupid drug laws and sentencing guidelines need to be changed. America needs change and Sen. Webb needs support to help bring change about.

      that we all can't do more to keep people like your brother out of jail.  Most people don't seem get the importance of this issue until it sends a shockwave through their own lives.  It is important for people to share the very personal ways this oppression is experienced.  Thank you for your comment.
