The Appalling Absurdity of Mandatory Minimum Prison Sentences. September 2, 2016 by Tim Baker. "3,278 prisoners serving life without the possibility of parole [LWOP]. Seventy-nine out of every 100 of these inmates is behind bars for a non-violent, drug-related offence. ... A homeless man who acted as go-between in the sale of two miniscule bags of cannabis (worth $20 total) to an undercover cop, Winslow was sentenced to LWOP based on other 'strikes' that were 14 and 24 years old, respectively. The dealer in the transaction, who was also identified by the undercover officer, was never charged."

The drug war is a big cause of the high US incarceration rate. Also, the rest of the developed world has much lower rates of handgun ownership, and much lower murder rates. They never reached the levels of violence the USA did due to handguns and drug war. So they never had the clamoring of the far-right National Rifle Association (NRA) demanding mandatory minimum sentencing. Canada and Europe have long had much lower incarceration rates, better healthcare, and far fewer and shorter sentences for marijuana offenses.
