Please vote to reduce the mandatory minimums for non-violent drug offenders. These mandatory minimums as the currently stand have a disproportionate negative impact on black and brown people. And are yet another example of how the state is stacked against minority's. Substance abuse should be dealt with rehab, mental health evaluations, community service and the like. It is time to rethink how to deal with drugs in this country. Let's not forget that prohibition was a complete failure. Let's focus are time, energy and resources on education and going after real criminals.
