Derek Harris didn't get a life sentence for selling marijuana.
He had been convicted of other felonies, and his marijuana conviction trigged the Habitual criminal act. Known as the 3 strikes you're out law.
Which mandates a life sentence to keep career criminals like him off the street ... :cool:

He should have been executed for both the drug offense and the habitual offender issues. Now this lawless freak will be back on the streets. I give it less than 30 days before he’s arrested again.

Another milestone of a nation's defeat fighting a plant.

The details are important. If a state has a "three-strikes and you're out" law and you are convicted of crimes twice, you are absolutely stupid to just commit another crime. Such behavior shows that you don't give a damn about the laws and will most likely never stop committing crimes. We have too many criminals as it is.
