President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act bill today repealing the disparities in sentencing for use of crack and powder cocaine. The former law was enacted 25 years ago and it had an overwhelming affect on the rise in prison population.

In 1980 drug offenders in federal prisons went from fewer than 5,000 to nearly 100,000 in 2009.
Washington (CNN) --The enactment of the law seals a hard-fought victory for civil rights activists who have argued for years that the differing punishments unfairly target African-Americans.

The Fair Sentencing Act repeals a five-year mandatory sentence for first time offenders, and for repeat offenders with less than 28 grams of crack cocaine. The old law set the mandatory sentence for conviction at five grams.

African-Americans have been far more likely than whites and Hispanics to be convicted for -- and receive the harsher penalties associated with -- possession of crack cocaine, according to government statistics. White and Hispanic defendants are more frequently charged with possession of powder cocaine. Source
It's encouraging to hear that the bill was passed in the House and Senate through bipartisan means. However, there is always one j.o.s.e.r who just wanna be seen and in this case it's Republican House Judiciary Committee member Lamar Smith (I know what you're think, no he's not black) ofTexas.

He reportedly argued passionately against the passing the bill shortly before its passage.

"Reducing the penalties for crack cocaine could expose our neighborhoods to the same violence and addiction that caused Congress to act in the first place," Smith said. "Crack cocaine is associated with a greater degree of violence than most other drugs. And more than any other drug, the majority of crack defendants have prior criminal convictions."
Basically what Smith is saying is if the bill is passed then the cracked out Coloreds will be free to terrorize us!

You're concerns are duly noted Smith...now have a coke (The beverage, get you minhd o ut the gutter!) and a smile and hush-de-phuck!

'Preciate ya!

Lady Gaga's admits to using ocaine plus a NSFW video of rapper Gunplay *I know what you're thinking...who?* snorting cocaine, after the break!

Lady Gaga graces the September issue of Vanity Fair

Music sensation Lady Gaga appears on the coveted September issue of Vanity Fair and she admits to occasionally using cocaine.
"I won't lie; it's occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year."
However, Gaga warns her fans to do as she says and not as she does.
"I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way."
Sorry babes, but it's not that simple.

I think Gaga is *Jay-Z voice* phucking awesome, but she was lame for admitting to using cocaine...in the popular September issue of Vanity Fair no less.

The sad truth is some of Gaga fans may be naive enough to think if Lady Gaga can occasionally do cocaine, so can I.

In other nose candy news, in the video below rapper Gunplay, a member of rapper Rick Ross' crew can be openly seen snorting cocaine...and he's sort of bragging about it.

Gunplay is the menacing dude with the "wicks" on the left...he scares me!

If crack is wack, then cocaine is lame!
