it's true. mandatory minimums for crack are 10 times higher on average. example, you would need to have a kilo of coke to get the same sentence as a guy with 10 grams of crack.Big Boss said:Are crack cocaine possession sentences really that severe in the States? I read in a book that it's a 5 year mandatory sentence for possession of 5 grams of crack or something like that. That seems a little bit harsh...
dude, if you have FIVE grams of CRACK.... it's hard to play it off as personal use.... 5 year mandatory doesn't seem that steep to me at all.Big Boss said:Are crack cocaine possession sentences really that severe in the States?

glad we have our priorities straight...
out of my generation/circle of friends and acquaintances (I know I'm spelling that wrong) there seemed to be a hell of a lot of kids who were getting into ALL KINDS of trouble. myself included. Some came from not so good backgrounds, so the parenting wasn't there in the slightest, but many came from good families, with seemingly with-it parents. I can't believe I'm saying this, getting all Tipper Gore, but I partly blame hip-hop/rap culture. Man, in the mid 90's, every white teenager thought they were some hard ass gangsta, and they usually did some pretty bad shit to prove it. The ones who actually came from those backgrounds were worshipped and encouraged to lead their respective crews.DancingQueen169 said:how does this even happen???
The parents need to be punished severly for this
yeah I saw that movie tooJAR said:up until a few years ago they used to do the mass-excutions in worker's stadium, right in the middle of Beijing. My friend who's lived here for 14 years, said they also televised the action...as well as the burning of tons of drugs. once you get excuted - single bullet to the back of the head - they send your family a bill for the bullet.
Yeah. I do remember that.Rude1_247 said:remember the 80s when the only people who could afford blow were either too rich to be around their kids anyways or were poor enough that they left their families altogether so they could afford to do more?
I blame functional addicts and cheap peruvian labour.
