The federal government sought to crack down on the problem by implementing severe prison sentences for those people caught dealing crack cocaine. For example, someone caught with powder cocaine would have to have 100 grams of the drug to get the same sentence as someone caught with just one gram of crack cocaine.
Hopfully, she will be a great influence on DT when she gets out and not a bad one! It would be nice if she got an early release as well.
Atlas is back. Did you give up on that Shanny led redskins and his great defenses he is able to build?
