Attorney General Holder has announced that low-level, non-violent drug offenders without gang ties or connections to large-scale drug organizations will no longer be charged by the federal government with crimes that could impose severe mandatory minimum sentences.

In the past, those charged with such crimes may face decades in prison for tiny amounts of certain drugs. Holder recognized such sentences were draconian and stated that the “We cannot simply prosecute or incarcerate our way to becoming a safer nation.”
