A lot of us, including a lot of Americans, are worried about the impact of a massive increase in mandatory minimum sentences on American citizens.
I am one of them.
I am a veteran of the drug war.
As a result of the War on Drugs, I’ve witnessed the loss of countless innocent lives, including the death of countless families.
The drug war has been the single greatest domestic threat to my family’s safety, and I have seen the damage it has done to the families of others.
We can make our voices heard on Capitol Hill and across the country to keep mandatory minimums from becoming a national policy.
That’s why I introduced the Justice for All Act to protect American citizens from mandatory minimum sentencing.
My bill would ensure that the United States’ mandatory minimum drug laws do not result in disproportionate punishment of Americans for drug crimes.
With my bill, we could end the War On Drugs, end the death penalty, end mandatory minimum laws, and restore our safety and justice system to the way it was before the War.
A bill like this should be bipartisan.
We should not let partisan politics keep us from enacting common-sense reforms to reduce mandatory minimum and parole sentences.
This is the only bill that has the chance to win the Senate this year.
The American people need to see that this is something that is a bipartisan issue, and that there is a strong bipartisan consensus in support of reform.
