CRACK vs. POWDER….The Supreme Court ruled today that it’s OK for judges to “consider the disparity between the guidelines’ treatment of crack and powder cocaine offenses” when sentencing crack cocaine sellers. If I’m doing the math correctly, they approved a judge’s reduction in a crack case from 100x the guideline for powder cocaine to only 80x. I guess this counts as progress.
