It’s five years into the administration; and we’ve seen states like Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia, already roll back their excessive drug-sentencing policies. So it seems to be the one area today that folks are able to get together on in Washington.”

“It’s obvious that if you lock more people up you’re going to have less crime, just because you’ve incapacitated people. But of course, the problem is that at a certain point you’re going to get diminishing returns.
