“Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Administration are not only taking a brave step, they are taking the right step.  The war on drugs has disproportionately impacted minority communities at costs that are staggering both economically and socially.  These reforms will generate enormous cost savings and begin to repair the harm that stems from this nation's decades-long overreliance on incarceration.”
