It is proven that people who get charges such as rape,murder,sex assault  and molestation do less time in prison then people who are facing a nonviolent drug offence crime. There are 451,000 people who are incarcerated for nonviolent drug offense. Majority of the drug related offenders will do Federal Prison time. Which means they have to do 85% of their time before being able to go up for parole. While the people who are in  state prisons for rape,murder,sex assault and molestation will only have to do 50% of their time and also with having good time they will be let out sooner then that. This has such a big impact on me because I have loved ones who are going to be spending the next 15 years behind bars on a nonviolent drug offense.They will miss out on their children growing up, miss out on the chance to be their for there families in times of need. With it being a sick relative to a parent or sibling passing away. They wont be able to be there for their family in that time.  I do believe that everything wrong has consequences and people should be held responsible for their mistakes. But I don't believe that the nonviolent offenders in the Federal Prisons should have to be doing 85% of their time. Some states have already passed The First Step Act. It has also been talking about that people who have nonviolent chargers should only have to do 65% of the time instated of 85%. My hope is to bring some light to this subject and try to make a change!
