BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Is 18 years in prison without the possibility of parole too harsh for a man arrested with 18 grams of marijuana? The Louisiana Supreme Court’s chief justice thinks so, and she blasted her colleagues for upholding the punishment.

In a withering dissent Wednesday, Chief Justice Bernette Johnson called it “outrageous” and “ridiculous” that the state’s highest court affirmed the lengthy prison sentence for such a small amount of marijuana – enough for at least 18 marijuana cigarettes.

A jury convicted Gary D. Howard of marijuana possession with intent to distribute and a Caddo Parish judge sentenced him as a habitual offender in 2014. Howard’s previous convictions include possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in 2008.

Donald Trump may be following through on a campaign promise more quickly and easily than building a wall or removing millions’ of Americans’ healthcare. And this is one Trump promise that drug-reform advocates can applaud.

Trump wants to slash funding for the office of the national “drug czar” by 95 percent, according to a budget document obtained by news media on Friday and first reported by POLITICO.

If the plan floated by the Office of Budget Management (MOB) goes through, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)—a White House-level office created during the Ronald Reagan, “Just Say No” 1980s, responsible for advising the president on anti-drug efforts and coordinating the various other federal agencies working on the issue—would see its budget cut from $388 million to $24 million.
