Here’s a link to The New York Times’ article about the Supreme Court’s decision to allow judges to reduce the sentences given to people convicted of crack cocaine possession. My understanding is that there were mandatory minimums judges had to impose that were quite a bit harsher than the minimums associated with powder cocaine possession.

This could be a good first step in reducing the jail time for crack cocaine users who are typically on the low-end of the socioeconomic scale.
