    When watching the first minute, is this 4 years ago or 4 days ago? Because all of those are things that still apply right now.

    Why does he say "commited a mistake" when referring to commiting a crime? Making a mistake is putting on your pants backwards or buying mayo instead of mustard. Dealing drugs is a crime. You know it's prohibited but you do it anyways. That's intentional, not a mistake.

    Mandatory minimum laws have got to go. How is this justice??? Ok no e of my best friends got 25 years for selling pot. He was a pot enthusiast that got good deals and started making money doing it. He was also a business owner and a very loyal hard working person. Nobody should EVER get 25years for selling pot.
