Bob Herbert again takes on New York's Rockefeller drug laws in today's New York Timees. The Ruinous Drug Laws
"How about a dose of sanity? After 29 futile and tragic years, it is time to bring the curtain down on the institutionalized cruelty of the Rockefeller drug laws. There is no way to justify sentencing nonviolent low-level drug offenders to prison terms that are longer than those served by some killers and rapists."
He's right of course. Can't anyone make the New York Legislature listen?
