Thieves target Home Depot in California, making off with hammers, crowbars and other tools

As a general rule, federal judges must impose a minimum term of imprisonment upon defendants convicted of various controlled substance (drug) offenses and drug-related offenses.

And simple possession is not one of those offenses. One year is the maximum, not the minimum. Read the statute.

By law a minimum of 1 year, so a minimum of 1 year it is. Perhaps there is a few cases where a minimum was not applied but the report gives the impression that the majority of cases have the minimum in effect.

Most cases of simple possession don't even get prosecuted federally, if they even are at all.

It's called self-control. You don't let your emotions get the better of you and stoop to personal insults.

Now are you going to continue to wallow in your shit of willful self ignorance, or will you take the time to educate yourself out of your mess?

Like that. You can take that bile and shove it. I'm not hearing any of that. This is rich from someone who gets such a basic fact wrong and then has the gall to insult me for it. Check your damn attitude. I'm not gonna sit here and take this much longer. One more crack like that and we're through, understood?
