Despite arguments from the advocates of the criminal justice reform under Obama, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and federal prosecutor Steven H. Cook are attempting to undo these policies. Both are eager in their approach to reinstate the national crime strategy used during the height of the drug war in the 1980's and '90's. It will be interesting to follow their progress and see if they are able to sway lawmakers into returning to the 'hard on drugs' approach. I personally believe that sessions is truly going in the wrong direction. Obama reduced harsh penalties for non-violent drug offenders for good reason! The old strategy that Sessions is trying to reinstate tore families apart and sent low-level drug offenders, disproportionately minority citizens, to prison for long sentences.
