Crackhead Apocalypse? 12,000 Convicted ?Crack? Inmates To Be Released

Thousands of inmates who have been incarcerated for possessing small amounts of cocaine will get a taste of freedom soon due to the Crack Cocaine Disparity Law, according to CNN. The law changes the 100-to-1 disparity between minimum sentences for crack and powder cocaine to 18-to-1.

In the old system, people who were caught with five grams of cocaine would receive the same sentence as those caught with 500 grams – five years of jail time. Now, those sentences will be cut in half for convicts busted for small amounts of drugs. Over 12,000 inmates are eligible for early release.
