I'm doing a speach for class next week and i wanted to know some ppl's opinion on this topic. Is mandatory minimum sentencing fair when it comes to powder cocaine and crack cocain  posession? Do you feel that it's fair that you get a minimum 5 year stay for 5.01 grams of crack but it takes 500.01 grams of cocaine to get the same stay. ( it's the 100:1 ratio ).
Responses will be shown in class.

no, mandatory minimum sentencing is very very unfair. why else has the percentage of americans in the prison system doubled since 1985?
