Cocaine Wars( Visual )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It takes 500 grams of powder cocaine to receive the same sentence that is meted out for possession of only five grams of crack cocaine. Yet five grams of crack is a user's dose, while 500 grams of cocaine is a dealer's supply. Why a 100-to-1 disparity?
