Heartbreaking and totally unjust drug sentence for first offender in USA

See on Scoop.itDrugs, Society, Human Rights & Justice

A first-time narcotics offender, father to three, sold pain pills to a friend. His punishment: 25 years in prison. It’s just the latest evidence that U.S. drug policy is madness.

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

Is this befitting of justice in the the 1700s or the 21st century?

Is this the action of a civilised advanced democratic society or the behaiour of brutal totalitarian regime?
