Disparity in Sentencing and Crack Cocaine

In a previous blog posting, I argued for rationality in sentencing given the widespread problem of prisoner overcrowding in the United States generally and in Florida particularly.  After publishing that posting, I came upon an article that appears on the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' website.  That article points out the disparity in sentencing between those convicted of crack cocaine offenses versus those convicted of powder cocaine offenses has been well known for years.  The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in a case that dealt with this disparity.  Will the high court do anything to correct this unjust disparity in sentencing?  We can only hope.
