Weldon Angelos 55 years in prison for selling a few pounds of marijuana while possessing a firearm

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

Weldon Angelos is serving a mandatory 55 years in prison for selling a few pounds of marijuana while possessing a firearm – a sentence so extreme that his judge, unable to go below the mandatory minimum, called on the president to commute Weldon’s sentence. Barring such a presidential commutation, taxpayers will spend over $1.5 million to keep Weldon behind bars until he’s 80 years old.
