3. the problem is

back when the crack epidemic was going on in the 90's, everybody, and I mean white, black, brown, was pushing for stiffer sentences for crack vs powder coke. Up to then, there was no difference as far as the law was concerned. the crack heads would get arrested, jailed, bailed, and be out stealing stuff for more crack in 48 hours. Now for some reason, people have noticed there are different sentences for crack vs powder and seem to have forgotten how those sentences got there.
