Obama has been specifically focusing on drug dealers and users in this crusade. He spoke at NAACP of his major concern in his "race agenda;" jailing/sentencing (relating to his public support of Black Lives Matter and his concern on drug use) (video). Obama stated that offenders of low-level crimes owe debt to the communities but should not have to give up 20 years of their lives (video).
Will this be effective in both punishing and helping lower level offenders?
Is integrating offenders (non-violent) into society (sooner than before) safe? Or does it depend on the case?
