BET Buzz: Obama has his work cut out for him

John Legend has written a letter to Obama with regards to the drug-related incarcerations tearing apart American families. Obama once said "The only way that we reduce demand is if we're providing treatment and thinking about this as a public health problem and not a criminal problem."John is in full agreement, but also feels that America is addicted to imprisoning non-violent drug offenders.


An estimated 36000 non-violent drug offender cases have sought relief under Obama's clemency initiative and he is asking how many more can be looked at before Trump steps into office. No word yet from Obeezy, but according to the White House he's commuted more sentences that 11 presidents combined & has surpassed his 1000 commutations mark
