The Federal Government is moving towards reduced sentences for drug offenses. But just who in government is moving that way surprised me.

On the legislative front, liberal Democrats joined by tea party Republicans have pushed hard for sentencing changes, particularly for drug offenders who make up about half of the nation’s more than 218,000 federal inmates.

Maybe libertarianism is getting stronger politically than I thought. And much sooner than I thought. I may have to get used to a whole new world. Again. I like it.
